It IS the policy of Susquehanna Llniversity not to discriminate on (he basis of race, color, religion, national 
or ethnic origin, age or sex in its educational programs, admissions practices, scholarships and loan 
programs, atillctics and other school-administered activities, or employment practices. This policy is In 
compliance with the requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education 
Amendments of 1972, regulations of the Internal Revenue Service, and all other applicable Federal, State 
and local statutes, ordinances, and regulations. Inquiries regarding compliance with Title IX may be 
directed to Dr. Gustave W. Weber, President, Susquehanna University, Seiinsgrove, Pennsylvania 17870,

OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS the various media 
have portrayed a dismal future for private higher education 
saying, among other things, that a liberal arts education is no 
longer relevant, that inllation has gutted quality and that 
retrenchment has paralyzed the development of those new 
and exciting programs which are so vitally needed. Many 
have joined in predicting the demise or, certainly, the severe 
erosion of colleges like Susquehanna. 

It is particularly gratifying to note a recent though much 
less publicized study indicating that private colleges are 
"holding steady" despite the soothsayers of doom and the 
devastating inflationary spiral recently witnessed. My most 
recent annual reports to alumni and friends of Susquehanna 
gave evidence of my own optimistic appraisal of the Univer- 
sity's future and of our commitment to move forward even 
against national trends to the contrary. This report will reaf- 
firm this feeling and highlight our progress of the past year, 
giving further evidence that Susquehanna is indeed viable and 
perhaps even more certain of its role in education than ever 

Prior to summarizing these highlights, however, let me 
provide a capsule of these more optimistic recent findings 
about private colleges in general. Their resilience during 
ominous times and their ability to "hold steady" provides 
assurances, I believe, that the private liberal arts colleges are 
resourceful and increasingly essential for the well-being of 
our society. 

The study, the Association of American Colleges' sec- 
ond annual report on financial and educational trends in 
private higher education, noted three basic findings: 

1 . That private colleges and universities have lost some 
ground financially because their revenues have not 
risen as rapidly as inflation. 

2. That despite the pressures of inflation, private in- 
stitutions generally have maintained the quality of 
their faculties, held their faculty-student ratios 
steady, and e.xpanded their academic offerings. 

3. That Federal and state programs of student aid have 
had a significant impact in maintaining private 
colleges' enrollment and easing the strain on their 

Some comments on these findings as they pertain to our 
own situation here at Susquehanna are in order. Almost all of 
us in higher education have been faced with crucial decisions 
about resource allocations during the recent period when the 
rise in inflation outran increases in income, including what 
charges could be passed along to students. Fortunately, the 
continued increases in our alumni giving have more than kept 
pace with inflation and, as you will note later, gifts to annual 
giving for the year just ended again increased by over 15 per- 
cent. Nevertheless, the last few years have made us rethink 

FALL 1976 

our budgeting process and have helped make us more alert to 
those Taetors which are critical to the educational process 
while eliminating those not relevant. This is not simpK a cost- 
effectiveness evaluation as in business, for there are certain 
programs and curricular offerings which must be maintained 
regardless of cost if a quality program is to be maintained. 
The upshot ofall this, then, is that our management processes 
are more effective than before, we have done a more thorough 
evaluative study of just what is important to us, and we are 
more conscious of the need to continually scrutinize what it is 
we are doing and want to do. 

The quality of the faculty is, indeed, the lifeblood of the 
college. We grant that there has been little mobility among 
college teachers in recent years and that this can inhibit new 
thinking; but, at the same time, in many ways the quality of 
teaching has improved. .-Mmost 60 percent of Susquehanna's 
faculty now have earned doctorates — the highest ever — and 
this speaks well for a young and vibrant faculty which 
averages about 4 1 years of age. We also note that our faculty 
ranks well in professional activities and in scholarly pursuits. 
A new program emphasizing continued individual develop- 
ment of our teachers and the teaching function will insure that 
this progress toward quality teaching is nurtured. 

1 referred above to the fact that in meeting the pressures 
of in nation the University did not eliminate those things most 
important for a good education. Our faculty-student ratio of 
1: 14.7 is impressive when compared to that of many of our 
competitors. This ratio has been maintained during times of 
stress and guarantees that those who choose Susquehanna for 
its personalized atmosphere and collegiality will not be disap- 
pointed. In our impersonal world it is in the best interests of a 
productive learning environment that a close relationship 
between students and faculty be maintained. 

The continued interest of the University in expanding its 
educational program to meet the needs of its students is evi- 
dent. A new computer science major has been established 
with the help of grant funds from the Burroughs Corporation. 
The first cooperative education program among Central 
Pennsylvania colleges permitting students to alternate 
periods of full-time work and study has been established with 
a grant from HEW. In cooperation with Tressler-Lutheran 
Service Associates, the University has formed a Center For 
Family Enrichment to provide an expanded social services 
program for this region and involve more of our students and 
faculty in Held experiences and applied research relating to 
these services. These programs strive to accentuate the value 
of the liberal arts education but, at the same time, integrate 
the liberal arts more closely with one another, to the actual 
world and to the pressing needs of our society. 

The cost of higher education is a matter of great concern 
to us all. I have stated on repeated occasions that S.U. prides 
itself on serving students from all socio-economic 
backgrounds. Yet, our costs keep rising just as they continue 
to increase for other goods and commodities. Contrary to 
what many think, education is still a bargain, since the 
average family spends a smaller percentage of its total income 
for college today than it did ten or fifteen years ago. The 

burden is eased further by a variety of financial aid programs 
available to deserving students, in addition to the Univer- 
sity's own financial aid resources which grow each year at 
least in proportion to cost increases, various state and Federal 
grant and loan programs provide relief for the lower and 
average income family. The Federal programs — National 
Direct Student Loans, College work-study, and Educational 
Opportunity Cirants — all are important to our students. In 
addition, the University has over 400 work opportunities 
available on the campus. The Commonwealth of Penn- 
svlvania, in one of the finest state scholarships programs of its 
kind, distributes about $72 million in grant awards to 
residents of the state each year. This provides a vital source of 
support for Susquehanna, since several hundred of our 
students receive about $.100,000 under the state program. 
Overall, about 50 percent of Susquehanna's students receive 
some form of financial assistance from these various sources. 
Much of the recent uncertaints which has pervaded 
higher education, you will note, has had to do with economics. 
It is realistic that the student, as consumer, should question 
whether or not he/she receives a fair rale of return on his/her 
investment. There has been much talk, even books written, 
downgrading the traditional liberal arts and sanctifying the 
vocational or trade school product during these limes of 
restricted employment opportunity. Statistics projecting that 
in future years many will be over-educated for the oc- 
cupational positions they hold merely adds reinforcement to 
this argument. Upon reflection, however, the broadly 
educated will still be the best equipped to cope with and take 
advantage of the opportunities offered in an increasingly 
complex world. Indeed, if even less satisfaction is to be 
derived from our chosen work and if, as a society, we are to be 
faced with a greater amount of leisure time, then the broadly 
educated person well schooled in the liberal arts will be the 
one able to adjust to and gain satisfaction from other aspects 
of his/her life. Perhaps in our zeal as educators to "sell our 
product." we have over-valued the monetary worth of college. 
This worked during the 19.S0s and 1960s when employment 
opportunities were abundant, upward mobility was assured, 
and our college students were class-conscious. Now, in 1976, 
we find a different pattern where the skilled tradesman can 
often equal a Ph.D. in wages, where the market remains over- 
ly competitive, and where the relevance of college is debated. 
If one's total satisfaction in life is financial in nature then, in- 
deed, there is question about the relevance of college for 
many. But, if total satisfaction is based on "living the full 
life." then the liberal arts college and what it offers is more 
iniportanl than ever before!

.September 1976 


THE ACADEMIC REPUTATION of the University con- 
tinues to grow and, contrary to some national trends, Sus- 
quehanna witnessed a 10 percent increase in applications for 
this fall. We anticipate a full enrollment of 420-430 students 
in our freshman class. While the number of students 
matriculating represents a slight decrease from last year, this 
is by design and Is an effort to relieve the severely over- 
crouded dormitor\ conditions of last fall. 

V\ hile many of the private colleges continue to note some 
decrease in the quality of their incoming students, we have 
witnes.sed an improvement in both college board scores and in 
the rank in class of our own freshmen. Almost 75 percent of 
the incoming students rank in the upper two-fifths of their 
graduating classes. This reverses a four-year decline in which 
the verbal aptitude and class rank moved downward and con- 
vinces us that with an increasing pool of applications the 
University can continue to improve the quality of the entering 

Before closing admissions in early June, the Admissions 

Office had processed nearly 1300 completed applications for 
admission. Susquehanna also received 10,000 inquiries from 
interested students, conducted 500 on-campus interviews 
with prospective students, and the four members of the staff 
visited 450 secondary schools. 

Several more general comments about the Admissions 
picture are in order. First, our goal is to continue to improve 
the quality of our student body by expanding the pool of 
applicants applying to Susquehanna. A goal of 1500-1600 a 
year by 1980 will allow us to do this. This would appear 
realistic in view of the growing reputation of the University 
among both prospective students and guidance departments 
even though it is apparent that the total number of students of 
college age will decline toward the end of this decade. 

We note, too, that the admissions process is becoming a 
much more personal thing for both the student and the 
college. More students are seeking an individualized type of 
education, more are certain of their goals in life, and as a 
result, more spend a greater amount of time evaluating what 
the various colleges have to offer them. Not only are the 
number of on-campus interviews increasing, but we find a 
greater number of students asking to meet with and talk to 
members of the faculty. This involvement of faculty in the ad- 
missions process, I believe, will continue and it is likely that 
all of our professors will spend increasingly more time 
working closely with the Admissions Office and with our 
applicants for admission. 

rv-* ■* 

IN HIGHHR EDUCATION we attempt to measure our 
success in many ways. College is geared to providing a basis 
for life and stimulating the processes of inquiry to such a point 
that education vmI! become a lifelong interest. As a result, it is 
difficult to measure at any particular moment the success 
Susquehanna has had in accomplishing its mission. 
Traditional yardsticks such as entrance to graduate and 
professional school are often used and. in this regard. Sus- 
quehanna ranks most favorably with other colleges. Of recent 
miportance, too. have been the results of a questionnaire 
mailed to a sample listing of our younger graduates — 1968- 
1 975 — asking if they thought that their education at S.U. was 
adequate and if it prepared them to begin their varied careers 
in the outside w orld. Better than three out of four questioned 
were entirely satisfied w ith the basic education received here, 
so much so that they would choose the University as their 
college again if starting over. 

I noted with pride that about 60 percent of these younger 
graduates had. since leaving Susquehanna, opted for ad- 
ditional educational work at the graduate or professional 
level. This reinforces the conviction that education is a 
lifelong experience and that our task at Susquehanna is to in- 
troduce the student to the various academic disciplines, teach 
him/her how to develop thought processes, and stimulate an 
enthusiasm for learning. Our role should not be, even during 
these times of vocational emphasis, to encourage students to 
choose a narrow, career-oriented program just because it will 
assure a first job: but. rather, to offer a well-rounded base 
from which the student can grow and develop more specific 

In a column earlier this year. James Reston referred to a 
study made by Willard Wirtz, former Secretary of Labor, 
now working with the National Manpower Institute. The sur- 
vey was a careful study of the nation's work and education 
patterns. Several main points were: 

Despite our long experience with practical education in 
manual training schools, land-grant universities and 
adult education classes, American life is still largely 
divided into the time traps of youth for education, 
adulthood for work, and old age for nothing .... Learn- 
ing and earning pass as totally isolated chapters. 

These two separate worlds of work and education are out 
of keeping with the present requirements of American 
life. At the beginning of this century, for example, the 
waking hours of most adults were completely dominated 
by the demands of earning a living and raising a family. 
But, now, with smaller families these responsibilities 
take up about one-third of the waking hours. 
Educators have devoted considerable time to this 
debate — national and local — on the place and function of 
liberal education, with particular emphasis on the church- 

related college, in an age wherecareerism and vocationalism 
have become a major consideration. Yet, as noted above, the 
real demands of the day require that education focus on the 
type of preparation that can be applied both to the world of 
work and to the intellect. Susquehanna again reaffirms this 
general direction as even more valid than before! This balance 
constitutes a distinct approach to education obtainable at a 
liberal arts college w hich is also church-related. The citizen of 
the future must, to adjust properly, not only continue to help 
pro\ ide for a famil\ through gainful and satisfying employ- 
ment, but also be able to utilize leisure lime in productive 
ways which will benefit both himself or herself and society. 

Recognizing, then, that our educational approach is 
sound, the faculty is now devoting time and effort to mak- 
ing our educational program even more productive for 
students — relating the academic disciplines to each other and 
providing students with opportunities to test their know ledge 
in the real world. There is no question that the future will re- 
quire more llexibility, continuing stud>, and a greater breadth 
ofknowledge on the part of both the students and the faculty. 
Ihe curriculum must be continuously refined and closely 
monitored in light of student needs and the demands of the 
times. The instructional staff must be familiar with the 
former, and aware of the latter. 

To help confirm our present course, the University re- 
quested and received a consultant from the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities to help us evaluate our program and 
offer ideas for the future. Dr. Mary I. Stephens, professor of 
English at Brown University, visited the campus several times 
during the past year, talked at length with faculty and 
students, and helped us review our program. Her summary 
contained at the conclusion of her report is of interest: 

In summary, it has been clear to me that Susquehanna 
has the resources and the ideas among its present faculty 
to make imaginative moves which will strengthen and 
redirect the curriculum both in the sciences and the 
humanities. Such reform will take time, pilot programs, 
openness in exchanging ideas, cooperative efforts, 
clearer lines of communication, and the strong desire to 
provide for the students at Susquehanna the kind of 
education on which the> can build their lives and their 
careers. This sort of curricular reform comes through 
evolution, not revolution, and requires an enormous 
amount of patience as well as energy. 1 think you are well 
on your way. 

Each year I like to be certain to mention the fine effort of 
our faculty of 100 who are responsible for the progress made 
h\ the University. We recognize with pride the professional 
competence of this group, almost 60 percent of whom now 
hold earned doctorates. One more member, William G. 
Krieger of the Psychology Department, has recently received 
his Ph.D. degree from Purdue University. In addition and in 
recognition of their teaching accomplishments, the following 
members of the faculty received proinotions effective this fall: 
lo profes.sor — Dr. Nancy A. Cairns in Erench and Mr. 
.lames B. Steffy in Music: to associate professor — Dr. W. 
Murray Hunt in philosophy; to assistant professor — Mr. 
Ronald L. Dotierer in English and Dr. William G. Krieger in 
psychology. Ihc following three members of our faculty were 


awarded tenure: Dr. William A. Remaley in business ad- 
ministration. Dr. G. Edward Schweikert in psychology. Dr. 
Richard H. Lowright in geology. 

The University recognizes its teaching staff as in- 
dividuals who have proficiency within their disciplines. We 
recognize, too, that to be an effective teacher each individual 
must be able to transmit his knowledge to students. This 
matter of "how to teach" is of growing concern to us as our 
students continue to demand a "fair return" on their 
educational dollar. As a result, much of our efforts as a 
University will be directed to helping our faculty become even 
better teachers. We are presently formulating an Institutional 
Development Plan whereby Susquehanna will provide incen- 
tive to all faculty to remain on the cutting edge of their dis- 
ciplines and, at the same time, seek out ways of integrating 
their knowledge with that of allied disciplines. The University 
will also initiate efforts which will improve teaching skills, the 
transmission of knowledge, and the presentation of material 
in more interesting ways. 

The completion of the Roger M. Blough Learning 
Center two years ago has had a very positive effect on our 
academic program. The use of the facility by students has in- 
creased appreciably and comparative figures published by the 
Pennsylvania Department of Education for 1974-75 show 
that Susquehanna ranked a highly respectable 1 8th among 8 1 
private colleges and universities in library expenditures. 
Although we still lag behind some competitors in number of 
volumes and volumes per student, great progress has been 
made and the future looks bright! 

New programs, sound in theory and in structure, which 
add new life to education and which serve the best interests of 
groups of students are important. In no sense can we still rely 

on the past for momentum into the future. Cooperative 
Education is one such program. Initiated two years ago, this 
program provides the opportunity for interested students to 
alternate periods of full-time work and study. It is a par- 
ticularly attractive program for those wishing to test career 
interests while in college, for those who must secure funds for 
the continuation of college, or for others who feel the need to 
space their education over an extended period. In one sense. 
Cooperative Education is an extension of the internship 
program which Susquehanna has sponsored for several years. 
We do not expect Co-op to involve great numbers of our 
students, but we do feel that it is an important option to offer 
students. In addition, the relationship established with 
employers through Co-op will benefit the University in other 

Beginning its second year, the Center For Family 
Enrichment provides a vehicle through which the University 
and its partner, Tressler-Lutheran Service Associates of 
Harrisburg, can extend their influence into the community by 
directing the various talents at our disposal to social con- 
cerns. The advantage to the University of combining forces 
with a large, highly respected social service agency is that 
many more of our students desirous of off-campus study ex- 
periences can be properly placed and supervised through the 
opportunities made available by the Center. In addition to 
providing our students with field experiences, the Center For 
Family Enrichment has become intensely active in family 
counseling and is planning to undertake an ambitious project 
in career counseling for local secondary school students. 

It is difficult to report objectively on the work of the in- 
dividual departments, since the continued improvement in 
quality of Susquehanna's educational product oftentimes 
does not reflect itself prominently in obvious and identifiable 
ways. At the risk of passing over other projects worthy of 
mention, however. I would like to note a sampling of the type 
of innovation taking place here. Dr. Hans E. Feldmann in 
English has worked hard to develop a writing skills program 
for those students who, although otherwise fully qualified for 
college, have difficulty with verbal skills. As mentioned 
before, this is a national problem; yet Susquehanna's 
willingness to meet this challenge head-on is providing those 
students with deficiencies the chance to gain equality with 
others whose grounding in the verbal skills is superior to their 
own. Assistance in initiating this pilot program was received 
from the Margaret Wendt Foundation in Buffalo, New York. 

Under the direction of Dr. Thomas F. McGrath, the 
Chemistry Department in cooperation with the University's 
Institute For Environmental Studies, has received a research 
grant of over $20,000 from the Environmental Protection 
Agency for summer research. This will provide faculty and 
selected students with the opportunity to work on problems 
relating to the use and control of pesticides. It should be men- 
tioned, too, that the Institute For Environmental Studies, un- 
der the direction of Dr. Frank W. Fletcher, professor of 
geology, has completed the third and final year of its grant of 
$220,000 from the National Science Foundation. The 
Institute provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study 

FALL 1976 

of environmental problems and serves about 1 50 students an- 
nually. The University will continue to support this project. 

The availability of off-campus experiences for students 
exists in almost every department. The Baltimore Urban 
Program, an internship which provides our students with the 
opportunity to become immersed in urban life, has become an 
important part of our program. Last year ten students par- 
ticipated and spent a term in Baltimore examining the many 
facets of city life. By the same token, the U.N. and 
Washington semesters and foreign study opportunities afford 
interested students study opportunities varied in nature and 
important as supplements to their formal coursework. 

The introduction of a Computer and Information 
Science major has provided yet another dimension for 
students, .•\lready 15-20 students have chosen this as their 
major field. In anothereffort to remain "on the cutting edge," 
the Business Division has formed a Business Advisory Coun- 
cil consisting of prominent men and women from the cor- 
porate world. This group will meet on campus semi-annually 
and advise the Business Division on future directions. These 
examples speak to the University's commitment to strive for 
continued improvement in our total program. 

.Another indicator of vitality is the degree of involvement 
of faculty and staff with their various professional 
associations, in research and writing, and in the community. 
Here follows a sample of this type of activity for the year just 

In the languages, Dr. Jane F. Barlow, professor of 
classical languages, participated in a Middle East Study 
Seminar; Dr. Robert G. Mowry, associate professor of 
Spanish, published a revision of a first-year Spanish text; Dr. 
Peter B. Waldeck, associate professor of German, submitted 
an article entitled "Anxiety in the Biology of Literature" to 
Susquehanna University Studies; and Dr. Nancy A. Cairns, 

professor of French, authored "Hamlet. Gide and Barrault" 
published in the Bucknell University Press. 

Among the members of the English Department. Dr. 
Feldmann, assistant professor, presented a report on the 
Susquehanna Pilot Writing Program to the Annual 
Assembly of the College Entrance Examination Board. He 
also submitted an article to Film Quarterly, published by the 
University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Marjorie W. 
McCune. associate professor of English, served as chairman 
of the Susquehanna University Studies Editorial Board and 
was co-editor of the publication of the papers presented al the 
1975 Bucknell/Susquehanna Humanities Colloquium. She 
was also elected chairperson for the Poe Section at the 1977 
NEMLA conference. In addition. Dr. McCune published an 
article in Susquehanna University Studies entitled "The 
Stone As Image: Browning and Ruskin." Mr. Dollerer 
published an article in Susquehanna University Studies on 
Wallace Stevens. "The Comedian as the Letter C." Dr. 
Eli^abeth Wiley, professor, presented a paper to the 
Pittsburgh Branch. Dickens Fellowship. 

Dr. Otto Reimherr. professor of philosophy and 
religion, attended a four-day meeting on Jewish-Christian 
Dialogue at the Princeton Theological Seminary and served 
as chairman of a discussion group on Politics/Ethics spon- 
sored by the Lutheran House of Studies in Washington. He 
also reviewed four books for Lutheran Quarterly. Boyd Gib- 
son, assistant professor of religion, reviewed for The Chris- 
tian Century a book by Daniel C. Maguire entitled Death By 
Choice and one by Sam Keen entitled Revie-ners Selection: 
Durable Works in a Time of Ephemera. He was also a partici- 
pant in the Bucknell-Geisinger Seminar in Bio-Ethics, and 
the Scripts and Gestalt Workshops sponsored by Tressler- 
Lutheran Service Associates. Dr. Richard Kamber. assistant 
professor of philosophy, presented a paper entitled "The

Dallas. Texas. 

Dr. Robert M. Bastress, professor of education, served 
on the Inservice Council of the local Intermediate Unit and 
on a statewide committee to rewrite the General Standards 
for the .Approval Procedures for Pennsylvania Teachers. He 
also served on a state evaluation team for Kings College while 
Dr. Charles J. Igoe, associate professor of education, was a 
member of a similar group at Lebanon Valley College. 

Dr. Donald D. Housley, associate professor of history, 
presented a lecture at the Eleventh Annual Research 
Conference of the Pennsylvania Historical Associa- 
tion/Pennsylvania Museum Commission, entitled "County

In the Department of Psychology, Dr. James R. 

Misanin, professor, has received an invitation to participate 
in planning the NASA Life Science Program in Space and is 
consulting editor to the journal. Psychology and Behavior. 
Dr. Misanin presented a colloquium on his research at 
SUNY, Binghamton and co-authored with Charles 
Hinderliter and Sarah Smith a paper entitled "A Reduction 
of bCS-Produced .-Amnesia Through Posl-ECS Sensory 
Isolation," submitted to the Bulletin of Psychonomic Socie- 
ty. Dr. G. Edward Schweikert, assistant professor, is engaged 
in a collaborative project on the use of bio-feedback as a 
therapeutic tool with colleagues at Mansfield State College 
and Lycoming College. Dr. Krieger presented two papers: 
"Task Satisfaction and Interpersonal Cohesiveness Among 
Laterally Divided Command Teams" to the Eastern 
Psychological Association, and "Socially and Non-socially 
Motivated Information Search in the Choice of Comparison 
Others from a Rank Ordering of Scores" to the meeting of 
the Midwestern Psychological Association. He also has in 
press a publication entitled "Infant Influences and the Parent 
Six X Child Sex Interaction in the Socialization Process" for 
the JS'.'tS Catalog of Selected Documents in Psychology. 

The Music Department faculty was active both on and 
off the campus during the past year. Recitals were given on 
campus by John Magnus, Joel Behrens, Harriet Couch, 
Galen Deibler, David Boltz, John Fries, Kay Shroyer, and 
James Boeringer while Donald Beckie appeared as guest 
soloist and woodwind clinician with the Southeastern Penn- 
sylvania District Band Festival and with the Williamsport 
High School Band. Professor Steffy was guest conductor for 
the Southeastern Pennsylvania District Band Festival, served 
as musical adjudicator for the Florida Music Festival and the 
Festival of Nations held in Washington, D.C., and as Festival 
music director for the Mexico Festival of Music. Cyril 
Stretansky, assistant professor, was guest conductor for the 
Wyoming Valley American Guild of Organists Festival 
Chorus, the Bloomsburg State College Choir, the Lehigh 
Valley Chorus, and served in Italy as music director for the 
Rome Choral Festival. Dr. Boeringer, associate professor, 
organized a Bach Festival Week during October. Mr. 
Magnus, associate professor, music, was a faculty member at 
the Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria this past 
summer. John Zurfluh Jr., instructor, was a guest clinician at 
a string clinic sponsored by the American String Teachers 
Association at Memphis State University. 

Dr. Kenneth O. Fladmark, professor of business ad- 
ministration, organized and directed an 18-session manage- 
ment development program for Trailco-Dorsey Industries 
and serves as a research associate for several firms. Mr. 
Richard J. Masom, assistant professor of business ad- 
ministration, is consultant for various out-of-state industrial 
concerns in the areas of management and manufacturing. Dr. 
Remaley, assistant professor in the same department, serves 
as a reviewer for the Houghton-Mifflin Company. 

The University's sabbatical leave policy encourages 
members of the faculty to improve their proficiency and to 
pursue scholarly work. During the current year several 
members ofthe faculty will spend from one term to a full year 

FALL 1976 


away I'rom their normal duties on campus. Dr. Lawrence A. 
Abler, professor of English, will travel and study in Europe. 
Dr. Bradford will journey to England to continue work on his 
forthcommg book on Namibia. Mr. Dotlerer will continue 
his graduate work. Dr. Misanin will travel to Kenya for 
animal research. Dr. Igoe will devote his leave to working 
with the Susquehanna Continuing Education Program. Mr. 
Deibler will pursue graduate work at the Peabody Institute. 
Dr. W aldeck will pursue his research on German literature. 

At the same time, we welcome the return to campus of 
Dr. David E. Horlacher, professor of economics, who for the 
past two years has served with the United Nations Mission on 
Population Studies in Bangkok. Mr. Richard A. Reiland. 
associate professor of accounting, also returns from a year's 
leave at Bowling Green University in Ohio. Mr. Warren J. 
Pirie. assistant professor of psychology, returns from a one- 
term sabbatical during which he continued to study recent 
trends in group counseling. 

Some mention should be made of the University's con- 
tinued growth in the area of continuing education. The Adult 
Education and Evening Program, begun in 1970, has grown 
to over 300 registrants during the second semester of last 
year. The development of the local region has precipitated a 
need for extension and continuing education of both a credit 
and non-credit nature, and Susquehanna is pleased to assist in 
this regard. Dr. Fladmark, under whose auspices the Evening 
Program has grown, will relinquish his duties as director after 
the coming year. His work will be assumed by Dr. Igoe. 
Similarly, Dr. Igoe will also replace Dr. Housley as director 
of the Summer Session. This will place the total extension 
phase of the University under a single directorship. The 
University thanks Drs. Housley and Fladmark for their fine 
contribution and for the flexibility they have built into our ex- 
tension program. 

Our efforts to assist the region in meeting even more 
specialized educational needs is apparent in the growth of the 
Evening Program. A Certificate Program in Community 
Mental Health under the direction of Mr. J. Thomas Walker, 
assistant professor of sociology, has been widely received and 
supported for another year by the Mental Health/Mental 
Retardation Offices in Danville and Sunbury. The Center For 
Family Enrichment, referred to earlier, under the direction of 
the Rev. James T. Parks of our staff, continues to address 
various social needs of the region. Dr. Reimherr's Institute 
For Studies In Parish Ministry performs a similar function 
for the clergy in the region. A wide variety of other programs 
includes a Preparatory Program in Music for 200 local school 
children held on campus each Saturday. Under the direction 
of Mr. .lohn E. Fries of the Music Department, this program 
supplements the instruction given to aspiring musicians in the 
local public schools. Two summer workshops sponsored by 
the Music Department are also held for young people in 
various areas of music. 

By all standards, the faculty remains active, the Univer- 
sity continues to broaden its academic offerings to a growing 
number of constituents, and Susquehanna moves forward in 
serving a vital role in higher education. 

I HAVE MENTIONED in earlier reports the degree of 
maturity of today's college student. We continue to be 
pleased with this and with the overall contribution of the stu- 
dent body to campus life. The role of student personnel at 
Susquehanna is to provide those services to our students 
uhich contribute to the educational growth, social and 
emotional maturation, and the assumption of personal 
responsibility by the student himself. This role has evolved 
from the student movements of the 1960s, especially the dis- 
solution of the in loco parentis role of the colleges. This latter 
policy emphasized the custodial and disciplinary aspects of 
the Dean of Students Office to such a degree that the students 
strove diligently to stay away from the office. Today the ser- 
vice aspect of the office is accentuated, with, I might add, 
much more positive results. 

An example of this is the area of career development and 
the expanding role of the Placement Office in not only 
providing a forum for visiting recruiters from business and in- 
dustry to talk with seniors, but in working with our un- 
derclassmen and preparing them for future careers. The 
Career Planning Conference has become an annual oc- 
currence on the campus. Visiting speakers from all the 
professions, from business and from government come to 
Susquehanna and participate. The Conference attempts to 
make the students aware of the need to plan for their future 
careers and outlines the necessary steps to take. In addition, 
the many varied opportunities which our students have for in- 
ternships, practicums and other off-campus experiences helps 
test and reinforce career preferences. A course in career plan- 
ning is to be added to the curriculum this year. Liberal arts 
students in particular will be assisted by this offering. At the 
same time, an emphasis on career development also 
spotlights the importance of faculty advising. Until recently 
many faculty regarded their role of adviser as a secondary 
function and relegated its importance to a "spare time" duty. 
Today, however, efforts are being made to more fully inform 
each and every member of the teaching staff of the impor- 
tance of advising. 

The University attempts to round out the education of its 
students with a variety of cultural events during the year. The 
very successful and widely acclaimed Susquehanna Universi- 
ty Artist Series does just that, in addition to offering our 
friends and neighbors in the surrounding area a unique enter- 
tainment experience. This year, as an example, the Artist 
Series will feature such artists as actor Jose Ferrer, the Atlan- 
ta Ballet, and the Roger Wagner Chorale. Each year the 
University offers over 200 cultural events, recitals and lec- 
tures which are open to our students and to the community. 

An area of student life that gives us some concern has 



been the general overcrowded condition of the residence halls. 
Determining the exact number of students who will accept 
our offer of admission is difficult at best, and the last several 
years we have underestimated our appeal. Hence, the over- 
crowded conditions in the dormitories. By design, we have cut 
back for this fall in the number of students offered admission 
in an effort to correct the overcrowding. 

There needs to be mentioned the condition of two of our 
housing units — Seibert and Hassinger Halls. Both these 
facilities have seen better days, and the University must 
schedule extensive renovations for each during the years 
ahead. The inadequate condition of these two dormitories is 
striking when compared with our other housing facilities and 
with Susquehanna's philosophy of education. Since the 
residence units are the most underrated and underused 
"classrooms" on any college campus, we envision increasing 
their utilization as both informal learning centers and as 
theme units where students with common interests can live 
and study together. Residence halls can provide a vital 
supplementary element to the learning process and it is im- 
portant that they be properly maintained and remain attrac- 
tive to students. 

A traditional complaint among students continues to be 
that there are an insufficient number of activities on campus 
over the weekends. We continue to work to improve the total 
livmg atmosphere, and an important role of student personnel 
is to work with the various student groups on this problem. 
There is no doubt that the completion of the physical educa- 
tion building will help remedy this complaint. For the first 
time the University will have a facility which can accom- 

modate many different activities at one time. We project a 
heavy utilization of this building on weekends. 

Recent changes in the law concerning the rights of 
women to participate equally in a full range of athletic and in- 
tramural activities makes the scheduled completion of the 
gymnasium even more timely. Up to the present, there is little 
doubt that the women's athletic teams have received a lower 
priority in the scheduling and the use of the gym. Now, 
however, the new building will afford equal access and the op- 
portunity for the University to provide an improved and ex- 
panded variety of activities for all students, both on the in- 
tramural and intercollegiate levels. As I have stated, we 
perceive the physical, spiritual, and intellectual needs of our 
students to be so interrelated that a deficiency in any one of 
these areas tends to inhibit the development of the total per- 
son. The need for a modern and functional physical education 
facility may be viewed with the same urgency and importance 
to our liberal arts philosophy as any other major building on 
the campus! 

As we stress the total dimension of the college education, 
one important area is the involvement of the students 
themselves in thegovernanceof the University. Students have 
become involved in governance in more than just the 
traditional way through a student council acting on the 
limited concerns of other students. At the University, 
students are active on most committees of the Board of Direc- 
tors and the student body elects two of its own representatives 
to the Board with full voting rights. 

Their contribution as members of the various Board 
committees has added an important source of input which has 

FALL 1976 


been very constructive in nature and student involvement in 
the broad range of University matters has been beneficial to 
us all. 

The concern of students for community affairs is also 
evident. During the flood of last fall almost one-third of our 
students assisted the Borough of Selinsgrove with the evacua- 
tion of 400 residents of the Isle of Que, relinquished their 
rooms in the dorms for local residents displaced by the Hood, 
and assisted with emergency feeding and day care activities. 
In addition, many of our students continue to assist with a 
wide variety of volunteer projects in the region. This is an im- 
portant dimension of college often overlooked! 

I suspect that a characterization of today's college stu- 
dent is hazardous at best, since interests vary greatly and the 
individualistic nature of each student precludes a common 
definition. Suffice it to say that our students are exhibiting a 
seriousness of purpose and an intense personal interest in 
education rarely before seen. This often appears to denote to 
the outside observer a disinterest in the broader affairs of the 
nation and the world. We sometimes worry about the solitude 
of the campus today and that such tranquility might reflect a 
complacency among our students. In fact, however, the op- 
posite is true. This personalized type of education simply 
signifies the wishes of most students to develop their own in- 
terests, do those things which bring them satisfaction, and 
pursue individual goals. 


THE GROWING NEEDS ofthis University continue to at- 
tract a favorable response from our alumni and from the 
general public. Once again, the University's annual giving ef- 
fort — the Susquehanna University Fund — reached a record 
$211,251 for the year ending June 30, 1976, thereby exceeding 
its goal of $200,000. This is an increase of 15 percent over last 
year's record total of $176,000. Most encouraging is the 
growth in alumni donors to the University — approaching 
I SOO this year or about 30 percent of the University's alumni. 
Ihis represents an increase of 300 donors over last year. 

In addition, the University Associates Program, the 
leadership phase of annual giving, received gifts of $100 or 
more from 453 individuals for a total of $116,026. This 
represents a one-year increase of almost 100 donors. 

As a total, gifts from all sources to the University for the 
year ending .lune 30, 1976 amounted to $838,319. This 
evidence of support and faith in the University is a source of 
pride to us all. We thank our alumni and friends! 

Specific gifts from various sources continue to augment 
the University's endowment holdings. An important example 
are bequests received during the year. During 1975-76 we 
received testamentary gifts from six estates and the following 
benefactors have helped sustain the University and its special 
needs: Helen G. Kisher '13, Robert N. Hartman '25, 
katherine P. Reed '29, John B. Kniseley '13, Harris Lee, 
Alma McCollough '24. In addition, a bequest of $150,000 
received earlier in the year from the estate of IVliller Gerhardt 
'30 has been designated as the Gerhardt Faculty Develop- 
ment Fund, and the income from it will be used to support 
faculty study and teaching improvement. Taken together, the 
total of these bequests amounts to more than $250,000 and 
prosides an important source of strength to Susquehanna. 
Looking ahead, we are proud to note that our anticipated 
bequests file lists over 100 alumni who have informed us that 
the University is included in their wills. Since endowment for 
future programs is vital, and since a bequest is an economical- 
ly feasible way to establish a lasting memorial at Susquehan- 
na, we encourage all alumni to investigate this method of 

Ihe present financial strength of the University is firm, 
>el we continue to be aware that future needs will require an 
extraordinary commitment from our alumni and friends if 
Susquehanna is to remain an important part of higher educa- 
tion. Our goal cannot be merely the maintenance of what we 
have now; our goal must be a commitment to improve even 
further that which has happened in recent years. With this in 
mind, the Board of Directors has assigned top priority to 
raising additional funds for plant and programs over the next

Two new tennis courts were added on the East Campus this summer. One was a gift from the Class of 1976. 

several years. This decision has resulted in the announcement 
in the spring of a $2.5 million capital funds drive — The Fund 
For Distinction — which will provide support for the physical 
education building as well as for endowment. At the same 
time, the Susquehanna University Fund will continue in 
operation, since it provides a vital source of operating money 
which has helped the University to balance its budget during 
the five previous years. As we move into this dual program, 
alumni and friends are hereby reassured that they will not be 
over-burdened, but that their gifts to Susquehanna, in 
whatever shape or size, will contribute to the total program 
and that suitable recognition will be forthcoming. 

As the University embarks on this next phase of its 
development program, we sense a genuine optimism about 
Susquehanna's future and its ability to become a truly out- 
standing educational institution. The results of recent years 
reinforce this enthusiasm since the building program and 
curricular innovations on campus have received wide 
acclaim. The growth in applications for admission indicates a 
broad appeal to students, while our growth in annual giving 
and in total yearly support denotes confidence in the Univer- 
sity's character and direction. It is evident that our total con- 
stituency is growing and increasingly responsivel 

The capital funds effort to raise $2.5 million over the 
next several years will provide an opportunity for our con- 
stituents to assist even further. The completion of the physical 
education building this September marks yet another 
milestone in campus development, while just as important a 
feature of the program will be to secure funds for endowment. 
Increased endowment will allow for the introduction of new 
programs, assist faculty to better equip themselves as 
teachers, and provide for maintaining faculty and staff com- 
pensation and financial aid at competitive levels. The Univer- 
sity's endowment is modest in relation to that of many of our 

competitors. As a result, an extra effort must be exerted to 
catch up! 

The importance of the new physical education building 
to the educational program of the University is obvious. Built 
in 1935, the present structure was constructed to serve a stu- 
dent population less than half the size of the present one. In 
addition to the complete renovation of the existing gym, over 
42,000 square feet of new space is being added. The expansion 
contams a modern swimming pool, a new main gymnasium 
with seating space for 2000 spectators and a variety of multi- 
purpose rooms. 

To take advantage of temporarily depressed building 
costs and favorable funding opportunities, construction 
began during the summer of 1975 and the project is to be com- 
pleted for use this fall. Dedication is scheduled for Friday, 
October X, 1976, the weekend of Homecoming. Our capital 
campaign seeks to raise $1 million to help offset the cost of 
this facility. 

-Some have argued with our choice of priorities over the 
past decade and one-half, but few will take issue with the fact 
that Susquehanna has grown impressively. Now we arrive at 
the position where most of our physical objectives have been 
met. and the culmination of this fifteen-year effort is the com- 
pletion of the physical education building. Looking ahead, 
the next fifteen years will be just as challenging, even though 
our emphasis will necessarily focus on building strength in 
our programs. Facilities, no matter how pleasing, are merely 
shells unless occupied by scholars well trained and supported 
in their pursuit of excellence. It is this important con- 
sideration — "the pursuit of excellence" — that must now oc- 
cupy our attention.

Throughout the years men and women of varied backgrounds and 
means have reaffirmed their faith In the future of the University by 
providing substance to the educational program through the use of 
their Wills. Over the years the University has received bequests ranging 
from $1 00 to $500,000 and each has played a significant role In the ad- 
vancement of the University. 

During the year ending June 30, 1976 Susquehanna received six 
bequests from former alumni and friends. The University wishes to 
recognize these benefactors, since these funds will serve to 
strengthen the long-range educational programs of the University. 

HELEN G. FISHER, a member of the Class of 1913 and a former 
school teacher from Redondo Beach, Los Angeles, California, in- 
cluded an unrestricted bequest to the University which was added to 
the University's endowment. Miss Fisher passed away on September 
22, 1974. 

ROBERT N. HARTMAN, a member of the Class of 1925 and former 

teacher-coach, died on January 17, 1976 in St. Petersburg, Florida. 
Mr. Hartman's bequest will be added to the University's endowment. 

JOHN B. KNISELEY died on September 25, 1974 in Giendaie, Califor- 
nia. He was a member of the Class of 1913 and the husband of Mary 
Graybill Kniseley, also of the Class of 1913, who passed away In 1964. 
An ordained minister. Dr. Kniseley served the Church for 58 years. The 
Kniseley bequest also becomes part of the University's endowment 

ALMA V. McCOLLOUGH, Class of 1924, Included a bequest for the 
use of the Music Department at the University. Miss McCollough died 
on March 17, 1976 following a long career as teacher in the Fairvlew 
Township-Karns City Joint School District in Western Pennsylvania. 

KATHERINE P. REED, a member of the Class of 1929 and former 
supervisor of music in Sunbury, Pennsylvania Schools, had a long and 
close association with the University. She passed away in April of 1974 
and her bequest becomes part of the University's permanent endow-

Shal<e It Up 

THE VISITOR to Susquehanna University's Environmental 
Studies Laboratory this past summer might have walked in on Drs. 
Thomas P. McGrath and Neil H. Potter of the Chemistry Depart- 
ment and two student assistants hard at work . . . mixing drinks in 
large cocktail shakers? Well, no. Those suspicious looking vessels are 
actually separatory funnels, although it is alleged that some chemists 
fmd other uses for them. The shaking operation was a step in 
pesticide research that Dr. McGrath directed under a $21,000 grant 
from the Federal Environmental Protection Agency. Student 
assistants were seniors Mark Buese of Windber, Pa., and Rick Hus- 
band of Troy, Pa. 

The S.U. chemists conducted recovery studies, from drinking 
water, of chlorinated pesticides like DDT and organophosphorus 
pesticides such as Malathion, analyzing for the presence of pesticides 
at very low concentration, down to one part per billion. Basically the 
experiments involved putting a measured amount of pesticide into a 
water sample and then determining what percentage of the pesticide 
was recovered. This information is valuable to environmentalists by 
providing a measure of what a water sample test means in terms of 
how much pesticide is actually present compared to how much the 
testing techniques are able to extract. Analysis of the pesticides was 
done by gas-liquid chromatography, using the electron-capture and 
flame photometric means of detection. 

So how do you get a pesticide out of a water sample after you put 
it in? Well, that's where the shaking comes in. As Dr. Potter explains 
it, an organic solvent is added to the water. The pesticide is more solu- 
ble in the organic solvent than in the water, so it is absorbed by the 
solvent (while all the shaking is going on). Then when the shaking 
stops, the solvent separates from the water (just like oil and vinegar). 
So the water plus pesticide has become solvent plus pesticide. This is 
then passed through a drying agent to further remove any lingering 
traces of water and is then heated to evaporate solvent and concen- 
trate the liquid to 10 milliliters. Finally, this is injected into the gas 
chromatograph. This "apparatus" (don't ever call it a "machine" 
within earshot of Husband, who is worried that the sophisticated in- 
strument will have its feelings hurt) analyzes the content of what it is 
fed by a magical process which shall go unexplained here. 

Does this sound like a nice way to spend the summer? You say 
you'd rather spend it mixing cocktails . . .?

SU Zpotis 


NOT CONTENT WITH JUST a new Physical Education 
Center and a new basicetbail coach, Susquehanna University 
will ring in the 1976-77 winter sports season with the first 
Susquehanna Invitational Basketball Tournament. 

The idea for the campaign-opening tournament was first 
conceived by new Hoop Coach Don Harnum early last 
summer. By that time most colleges had already finalized this 
winter's sports schedules and Athletic Director Jim Hazlett 
was hard pressed to find teams able to accept an invitation to 
play in the event. Many said "we'd love to come, but not this 
year." However, despite this problem, Hazlett was able to 
line up an interesting and competitive field. Joining the host 
squad will be Gettysburg, Swarthmore, and Shippensburg 

The tourney is scheduled for Nov. 29 and 30, the first 
Monday and Tuesday evenings following Thanksgiving. An 
important consideration in selecting these dates is that school 
is in session at that time. Hopefully the student body will 
provide a large built-in audience for the event, and hopefully 
the tournament will generate some renewed excitement and 
support for S.U. athletics on campus as well as in the sur- 
rounding area. 

It is anticipated that the Susquehanna Invitational will 
become an annual affair and that the Crusader team and fans 
will see some fine competition that might not otherwise 
appear on the schedule. An attempt will be made in the future 
to include representative small college teams from New 
England. New York, the South, Midwest and perhaps other 

Pairings for this year's tournament call for Susquehanna 
to meet Swarthmore in the second game of a doubleheader 
Monday night, following a contest between Gettysburg and 
Shippensburg State. Both the winners and losers would meet 
in two more games Tuesday night. 

Coach Harnum should have a pretty good group to send 
into battle during the upcoming season. The point-production 
of center Dave Long '76, among the top scorers in S.U. 
history, will certainly be missed. But among the several re- 
turning veterans is Mike Scheib '78 of Millersburg, Pa., 
perhaps one of the best small college guards in the region, 
along with some good size up front in 6-9 Bob Hertzog '77 of 
Atlas. Pa., and 6-8 Bruce Bishop '78 of Cranford, N.J. Other 
returning lettermen include Ron Brett '77 of Wyncote, Pa.; 
Mike Feeney '77of Mechanicsville, Pa.; Bob Mancuso'79of 
Dunmore, Pa.; Mark Pollick "79 of McAdoo, Pa.; Bill Timlin 
■77of Avoca, Pa.; and Randy Westrol '79 of Elizabeth, N.J. 

Probable additions to this list are 6-4 Dave Atkinson '77 
of Carbondale, Pa., and 6-5 Bob Buckfelder '77 of Rockville 
Centre, N.Y., who earned letters two years ago but decided to 
sit out the 1975-76 season because of disagreement with Har- 
num's predecessor. It seems likely that this squad can im- 
prove on last year's disappointing 6-17 record. 

The basketball team will not be the only attraction for 
Crusader watchers this winter, however. The new building 
itself is expected to draw fans who will welcome the change 
from playing "home" games in someone else's gym at the 
Selinsgrove Area High School. There'll be room for about 
2000 of them in the new arena, which will also be home for 
wrestling and women's basketball squads hoping to snap 
strings of lean years. The new surroundings could provide 
new inspiration for Susquehanna athletes. And the existence 
of the new facility will help in recruitment of future stars. 

This infiuence has already been felt, in fact, according to 
Hazlett. He says he was more successful than he had an- 
ticipated in bringing in new freshman football talent despite 
the loss of athletic scholarships. (The University now awards 
all grants strictly on a "need" basis through the Financial Aid 
Office. Athletes are, of course, eligible for financial 
assistance along with other students if they demonstrate 

Intercollegiate athletics is not the sole beneficiary of the 
new building. Design of the structure placed heavy emphasis 
on opportunities for physical education, recreation, in- 
tramural and carryover sports for both men and women. In 
fact, the new area which may prove most popular will not be 
the scene of any intercollegiate events, at least not in the im- 
mediate future. That is the swimming pool. 

Susquehanna will now encourage all incoming students 
to take courses in swimming, lifesaving, and water safety as 
part of their physical education requirement. Scuba diving 
and canoeing will also continue to be taught. 

Faculty and staff are expected to make frequent use of 

the pool when it is not in use by students. Plans also call for 

the pool to be made available for community events when 

school is not in session. The new Physical Education Center 

may soon become an area landmark as well known as Weber 

Chapel Auditorium. 

* * * 

Although the appointments have been previously an- 
nounced, we take this opportunity to again welcome Harnum 
and Bill Moll back to the Selinsgrove area. Readers may 
remember that Harnum previously served as head basketball 
coach at Susquehanna and was 23-23 for two seasons, 1969- 
7 1 . During the past five years he compiled a 69-57 mark at the 
University of Delaware while Susquehanna went 46-73 under 
Barry Keadle, Harnum is also as assistant professor of 
physical education. Moll has signed on as an assistant foot- 
ball coach and instructor in physical education. While head 
football coach at Selinsgrove High, 1967-72, Moll directed 
the Seals to a 36-14 record and four consecutive Susquehanna 
Valley League Class B championships. More recently he 
brought Freedom H.S. in Bethlehem its first winning season 
in history and Red Land H.S. in Lewisberry its best record 
ever. Harnum and Moll will also be coaching in spring sports.

The Business Division of Susquehan- 
na University has formed a Business 
Advisory Council consisting of promi- 
nent businessmen who will assist the 
faculty in planning for the future. 

To meet semi-annually, the Council 
will participate in the areas of cur- 
riculum, internships and off-campus ex- 
periences for students, career days and 
guest lecturers, and will contribute from 
its professional experience in ways 
which will be helpful to the business 
program at Susquehanna. 

Dr. Kenneth O. Hadmark, chairman 
of the Business Division, said that "it is 
important that the University maintain 
its contact with leaders in the field of 
business. Too often we have remained 
apart when, in fact, we should have a 
basic common interest in preparing 
young people for careers in business and 
for upward mobility within the business

According to the annual December 
survey by the College Placement Coun- 
cil, job prospects for this year's college 
graduates appear "significantly better" 
than in the two previous years. 

More than 600 employers queried in- 
dicated that, overall, they expect to hire 
12 percent more new college graduates 
than in 1975-76. At the same time a year 
ago, a 5 percent decrease was forecast. 
Conditions improved during the re- 
cruiting season, however, and the CPC 
year-end survey in June showed an ac- 
tual decrease of only 2 percent. 

Private-sector employers remain the 
most optimistic, indicating they will 
have 16 percent more jobs available, 
while Federal agencies foresee an in- 
crease of less than 1 percent. 

The strongest upsurge is expected in 
engineering curricula, next in "sci- 
ences/math/other technical" cate- 
gories. Business disciplines will prob- 
ably experience the least improvement 
although MBA. holders will be in 
great demand. 

For the first time in three years, hires 
in the "other non-technical" category 
(primarily liberal arts) are expected to 
rise — by as much as 8 percent.

PERFECTION is readily appreciated, wherever it is found. 
That's why Susquehannan Gerry Huesken '77 of Palmyra, 
N.J., can stand out in a group that includes superior scholar- 
athletes from the most athletically and academically 
prestigious colleges in the country. 

Gerry was selected to receive one of 1 1 scholar-athlete 
awards for 1976 by the National Football Foundation and 
Hall of Fame. Before going to the Foundation's annual 
awards dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City on 
December 7. Gerry wondered how the lad from little Sus- 
quehanna would be accepted by the other scholar-athletes 
from the likes of the Big Ten. the Big Eight, and the Ivy 

As it turned out, they were pretty impressed as was 
everyone else at the illustrious affair. Because Gerry had a 
distinction that none of the other award-winners and few' peo- 
ple anywhere can claim, a perfect 4.0 (straight A) grade point 
average. His fellow scholar-athletes respected him for that, 
and the I 500 people at the dinner took notice of him too. As 
Gerry's achievements were described during the award 
presentation, a combination of gasps of astonishment and 
shouts of praise sounded through the Waldorf's cavernous 
Grand Ballroom. Gerry received one of the most enthusiastic 
rounds of applause of the evening, and congratulatory hands 
reached out from several of his neighbors as he stood in the 
spotlight at the front of the four-row dais. 

The National Football Foundation award is presented 
"to outstanding college seniors who display campus 
leadership and who excel academically as well as 
athletically." In addition to a silver bowl and a three-day 
expenses-paid stay in New York, each of the 1 1 scholar- 
athletes received a $ 1 000 postgraduate scholarship. The other 
recipients were Bo Busby, Arkansas safety; Randy Dean. 
Northwestern quarterback; Vince Ferragamo, Nebraska 

quarterback; Kevin Fox, Princeton guard; Jeff Dankworth, 
UCLA quarterback; Mike Mauck, Tennessee safety; Steve 
Miller, Brigham Young guard; Stone Phillips, Yale quarter- 
back; Duncan McColl, Stanford defensive end; and Pat 
Sullivan, Dartmouth tackle — all candidates for a "Most 
Likely to Succeed" list. 

If that was not enough of an honor, Gerry and Sus- 
quehanna learned soon after the NFFHF dinner that he had 
been chosen for an even more selective award: on January 1 1 
at the annual Honors Luncheon of the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association in Miami Beach, Gerry would receive 
one of the NCAA's annual "Today's Top Five" Student- 
Athlete Awards. Only five student-athletes from all sports 
among the entire NCAA membership are chosen for this 
honor on the basis of "athletic ability and achievement, 
academic excellence, and character and leadership abilities." 
To be feted along with Gerry at the NCAA national conven- 
tion were fellow gridders Dankworth and Dean and two 
members of the 1976 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team, Steve 
Furniss of Southern California and John Hencken of Stan- 
ford. There was a well-known name among last year's "Top 
Five," Archie Griffin of Ohio State. 

In addition. Huesken has been notified that he will be 
given a $1500 postgraduate scholarship by the NCAA. 
Thirty-three such awards are made annually to outstanding 
football players who are distinguished scholars. 

AsS.U. Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Jim 
Hazlett puts it. "Gerry is rubbing elbows with the upper 
crust." On the dais of the Waldorf's Grand Ballroom he sat 
between Ollie Matson. former San Francisco fullback, and 
Victor Markov, former Washington tackle, two of the 12 new 
members of the Hall of Fame who were inducted at the 
dinner. Other award-winners were Edgar Speer of PMC (now 
Widcner College), chairman of the board of U.S. Steel,

recipient of the Football Foundation's 1976 Gold Medal, and 
Gen. James Van Fleet of Army, commander of United 
Nations forces during the Korean War, recipient of the 
Distinguished American Award. Also on the dais were 
master of ceremonies Chris Schenkel; His Eminence 
Terrence Cardinal Cook, archbishop of New York; Dr. 
Jerome "Brud" Holland, former ambassador to Sweden; 
Charles "Bud" Wilkinson; and Roger M. Blough, a co- 
chairman emeritus of the Foundation's advisory board. 

Blough served as a reminder that, despite Susquehanna's 
small size, it was no newcomer to the Grand Ballroom and the 
ranks of institutions honored by the National Football Foun- 
dation. A 1925 grad who became chairman of the board of 
U.S. Steel, Blough was Gold Medal recipient in 1963. Dr. 
Gustave W. Weber, S.U. president, was given a special cita- 
tion by the Foundation after he took over as coach of the 
Crusader football team for the final two games of the 1965 
season. And, of course, there is also the late Amos Alonzo 
Stagg Sr., honored several times by the NFFHF, who 
coached at Susquehanna 1947-52 with his son A. A. Stagg Jr. 
So Football Foundation officials did not have to go far to ob- 
tain a Susquehanna orange and maroon banner to hang with 
those of other schools in the Grand Ballroom on December 
7 — they already had one on hand. 

Dr. Weber and Hazlett were in attendance in New York 
to see their scholar-athlete receive his award, along with 
Gerry's father Theodore Huesken Sr. of Palmyra, N.J., and 
this writer. But one person who played a great role in Gerry's 
development was missing at the black-tie, stag affair, accord- 
ing to Mr. Huesken. That was Gerry's mother Mrs. Claire 
Huesken. A firm believer in the values of education and an 
avid reader herself. Mrs. Huesken taught all her children to 
read and write before they went to kindergarten. This early 
start must have had something to do with the fact that Gerry

went through Palmyra High School receiving only two grades 
lower than A. He got Bs in typing and band. 

Huesken's gridiron and academic achievements have not 
come without a lot of hard work. Although he was a four-year 
starter on a successful high school football team, Gerry was 
not sure he was good enough to play college football. The fact 
that he would be more likely to have the chance to participate 
at a small school was one of the reasons he eventually chose 
Susquehanna over other possibilities such as Rutgers. He 
weighed a little over 200 pounds m high school, played some 
tackle, and was moved to tight end during his senior year, 
"mostly for blocking purposes," he says. "They threw only 
two passes to me," he recalls. "One went over my head and 
the other went for a touchdown." 

Gerry's work at Susquehanna included building up his 
weight and strength with off-season conditionmg. For most of 
his college career he played with 235 pounds on his 6"3" 
frame. He became a starter at offensive tackle for the 
Crusaders as a freshman. Line Coach Bob Pittello thinks 
Gerry is one of the best to ever play that position at S.U., and 
Pittello has seen a lot of good ones during a Crusader playing 
and coaching career that spans nearly 30 years. 

Gerry received honorable mention on the Little All- 
America, All-State (Pa.), and ECAC teams following his 
sophomore season. .-Xs a junior he was named to the first team 
of the Middle .Atlantic Conference Northern Division all-star 
squad. Coach Hazlett describes his big tackle as a "steady 
and dedicated player, excellent on all types of blocking, who, 
unlike most linemen, really prefers to play offense and 
worked hard to improve himself." National recognition as a 
scholar-athlete first came Gerry's way following the 1975 
.season when he was named to the Academic All-America 

Getting all As is a hard task for any student but it is es- 
pecially difficult for an athlete who must put in many hours 
on the practice field when his classmates might be in the 
library. A serious scholar, Gerry usually stayed up until about 
2 a.m. to get his studying done during football season and his 
sleepmg time was limited to about five hours per night. 

However, the term "scholar-athlete" does not convey 
the full extent of Gerry's qualities and abilities. After his 
gridiron performance and his 4.0 GPA, the trait most respon- 
sible for earning him national awards is probably his excellent 
creative writing ability, especially in poetry. As a sophomore 
he won the poetry prize awarded by the S.U. student literary 
magazine Focus, and for the past two years he has served as 
poetry editor of the publication. Topics for his poetry are far 
removed from the gridiron. His favorite themes come from 
Greek mythology — figures such as Orpheus, Proteus, and 
Achates. He deals with themes like love, death, the creative 
impulse, and search for personal fulfillment. 

Huesken's other campus activities include serving as a 
dormitory head resident and as a member of the Student 
■ludiciary Board, Student Senate Athletic Committee, and 
Orientation Committee. Interested in increasing fan support 
for all S.U. teams, he was co-founder this year of a booster

and writing because they are "expressions of human feeling." 
While some might see a contradiction here, Gerry says it 
comes naturally to him. "It's two different aspects of the 
same person," he says. "I like to express myself, and I can do 
so on the football field or in poetry." Gerry applies some of 
the organizational and strategic skills learned as part of a 
football team to his writing. "The idea comes spontaneous- 
ly," he says, "but the written word does not — thoughts have 
to be organized and structured and presented in some 
coherent form." 

The interest in people that Gerry now expresses through 
his studies in literature he wants to express in the future as a 
teacher and coach at the secondary level. He plans to attend 
graduate school in education where he hopes to receive a 
coaching assistaniship. And he wants to continue to develop 
his writing skills. He hopes that at some point in the future he 
will have more time to work at his writing than he does now. 
These days he is often too busy to devote as much energy as he 
would like to this pursuit. Keeping that 4.0 has top priority.

I heard of a man that Spring did not save, 
A man whose young years were so briefly spent. 
For whose hfe there was no stone monument, 
So I laid some llowers upon his grave. 

And I think of his good woman awhile. 
And his babes who wonder at the best hat 
That he wore and the place where he sat 
And why there are tears behind mother's smile. 

But such words are not meant for moonlit nights 
So soothed by warm waves 'mid a starry hush: 
What reason for dark when all is bright? 
Yet where is the reason that makes it right 
For loves like ours to bloom all in a rush 
And to wither and die before dawn's light?

The artist paints his soul with colors, 
While from a rainbow, finely woven, 
Bright tapestries the weaver tailors. 

And even finer tools have given 

To Sculptors who work with cold marble 

Gifts to create from rock that has been 

Ever dormant, sleeping long in nature, 
A newborn form and meaning never 
Before known. Yet I also nurture 

Passions within, yearnings to aver 

That, lying here with you, these moments 

Might never die. But could there ever 


My love is like a sunrise on the ocean. 
Bright with hopes for the day it has never seen. 
Rising from inside the womb of Mother Earth, 
These moments seem too calm to have to question 
If my vision should see light beyond my eyes; 
Yet always there my gentle mystery queen. 

Live the words that would these burning thoughts 
So paint, or so weave them for the eye 
To hold? Or could the three most weary words 
So conceive still another heart from stone?

My love is like a golden seashell kingdom 
Reflected in a world of emerald green. 
Where joy and peace reign as the prince and princess 
In thrones of coral with crowns of oyster pearl. 
Love and harmony rule my tall sand castles — 
The realm of my beloved mystery queen. 

My love is like a thousand flying seagulls. 

Touching the skies with their wings to find their dreams. 

With them to the heavens soars warm affection 

For a girl who understands as well as sees. 

Yet love surrounds ideals more than a woman — 

Echoes of my enchanting mystery queen. 

My love is like a sunset on the ocean 
As darkness enters another lonely scene: 
Rays on the waters in vain eternal dance 
As sunshine dies in showers of blazing rain. 
May dawn be the chariot of her coming . . . 
1 pray to God I find my mystery queen. 

Sing sweetly of autumn days 
And passing gloom. 
Remind the youth 
Not to turn so soon. 
Visions may vanish. 

Golden hair 
Silver spoon 
Clever words 
Silent tune 

Sweetest songs are sung alone. 

The poet's gift 

Tears him apart. 

For words too turn gray 

And silvers tarnish.

WINTER 1977 



EVERY COLLEGE or university in the country feels its 
educational program deserves accolades. Such pride is 
genuine, but outward smugness can often belie inward dis- 
satisfaction. Susquehanna University has made a serious 
attempt to determine just what its graduates think of the 
education offered at the University. In many respects, 
responses confirm attitudes which were generally accepted on 
the campus. Other responses surprised University officials 
and this data has been incorporated into the University's 
review structure for discussion and follow-up. The general 
consensus is that such attitudinal surveys should become an 
even more important part of the University's planning 

There is a second important featureof recent alumni sur- 
veys. They have been conducted by Susquehanna University 
students — the most recent study by a class in Business 
Research, a course offered by Susquehanna and taught by 
Richard J. Masom. assistant professor of business ad- 
ministration. The double benefit results from both the infor- 
mation received in the questionnaire used and the opportunity 
for six Business Research students to actually put their 
classroom talents to work. This group of students prepared 
the survey and scientifically interpreted the responses. 

The preface of the final report speaks to the purpose of 
the survey: 

There are many instances in which institutions should 
look at themselves reflectively and inquire as to whether 
the goals originally established are being fulfilled. . . . 
Our purpose is to aid in the reflective environment of 
Susquehanna University. Through this study, we hope to 
provide information that is useful to the University in its 
evaluation of itself as an effective institution. 

The scope of the study encompassed topics dealing with 
career information, educational facilities, and strengths and 
weaknesses of Susquehanna as a whole. A random sample of 
844 questionnaires were distributed to graduates from 1965 
through 1975. Five hundred thirteen responses were received, 
a yield of over 60 percent, which is exceptionally high and 
may reflect the sincere interest of alumni in helping the 
University improve its educational program. The following 
comments represent excerpts from this survey together with 
more personal opinions from fifteen representative graduates 
of that period. 

Susquehanna As An Educational Institution 

One of the most interesting topics that concerns a college 

or university is its overall evaluation or appraisal in the eyes 
of its graduates. The alumnus was asked to rank Susquehan- 
na as either an outstanding, above average, average, or below 
average educational institution. The following data indicates 
that our women graduates were slightly more critical than the 
men. but 77 percent of the men and 7 1 percent of the women 
ranked the University as either "outstanding" or "above 
average." Significant is the fact that only 1 percent of the men 
and 2 percent of the women rated S.U. "below average." 

Undergraduate Study and Employment 

One section of the survey was designed to find out if the 
respondents became engaged in work related to their un- 
dergraduate study once they left Susquehanna. Of interest, 
too. was a determination of how the three major fields of 
study — liberal arts, business, and music — compared on this 
same issue. 

Music majors had the highest percentage of positive 
responses to the question: "Was your first full-time position 
in any way related to your undergraduate major?" They 
responded with 90 percent positive for the males and a close 
88 percent for females. A probable reason for these high 
percentages is that music is a much more specialized major 
than the others offered. Business majors ranked second with 
indication that 81 percent of the men and 80 percent of the 
women secured their initial jobs in a business-related field. 
Liberal arts majors, on the other hand, indicated in 5 1 percent 
and 58 percent of the responses for males and females respec- 
tively that they had taken an initial position in a field related 
to their undergraduate field of study. As might be expected, 
most graduates have had to try harder in recent years to ob- 
tain initial employment in their major field. The difficulty for 
business and music majors, however, was not nearly so severe 
as for the liberal arts graduates. Among the Class of 1974, for 
example, only about 40 percent of the liberal arts male 
graduates and 58 percent of the females were able to find in- 
itial employment in a related field. This would seem to be in 
line with national trends and also reflects the fact that, for 
many, a liberal arts undergraduate program of study is not 
actually preparation for a job. 

What Recent Grads Think 

WINTER 1977 

Another point of interest is that only about 1 8 percent of 
the female liberal arts majors gained that first job within three 
months following graduation, while about 75 percent of the 
female business students were successful within this time 
frame as were about 70 percent of the female music majors. 
On the other hand, some 60-65 percent of the male graduates 
in each of the three degree programs secured initial employ- 
ment within three months following graduation. Also, both 
business and music majors of each sex obtain full-time 
positions much faster than their liberal arts counterparts. A 
qualifying statement must be made, however, to indicate that 
what would seem like the inability of some to gain employ- 
ment results not so much from failure as from the fact that 
many never enter the labor force. The role of housewife and 
enrollment in full-time graduate or professional schools are 

The Effectiveness of Susquehanna's Curriculum 

.Attempting to discover strengths and weaknesses in the 
University's curriculum, the survey asked whether or not a 
Susquehanna education had prepared the graduate for 
his/her career. Those questioned were asked to rate the effec- 
tiveness of the curriculum as either outstanding, above 
average, average, or below average. 

In the years 1966-69 and 1973-75, those alumni holding 
music degrees rated the effectiveness of the music curriculum 
consistently higher than did the business or liberal arts 
respondents. This overall higher rating for music supports the 
reality that a more specific and specialized field, such as 
music, allows for in-depth study and more adequately 
prepares one for a chosen career. 

At the same time, the business graduates have a much 
higher appraisal of Susquehanna's curriculum than do the 
liberal arts alumni. Interestingly, the esteem of the business 
curriculum continues to rise significantly during each year 
beginning in 1969 through 1975. On the other hand, the 
liberal arts rating declined for each year after 1969 but then 
experienced a startling improvement among 1975 alumni. In 
summary, 91 percent of the music students rated S.U.'s 
curriculum as either "outstanding" or "above average," as 
did over 65 percent of the business students and 45 percent of 
the liberal arts majors. The interpreter must use caution and 
understand that responses to a question like this might be 
affected more by the job market at the time of graduation 
than by the quality of the curriculum itself. Over this ten-year 
period of economic ups and downs, however, trends do in- 
dicate that music and business are seen as strong programs in 
the eyes of the graduates, while satisfaction with the liberal 
arts curriculum is not as solid. The sharp improvement in the 
esteem of the latter in the eyes of the Class of 1975 might in- 
dicate that certain curricular revisions now underway 
together with an emphasis on academic advising are having a 
positive effect. 

Would You Do It Again? 

A final question of great overall significance asked the 
respondents, if they were to go to college again, would they 
"choose Susquehanna?" From a high 80 percent of affirma- 
tive answers from 1965 graduates the favorable responses slip 
to a low of 65 percent in 1969. From 1970 through 1975, 

however, it began to fluctuate on a year-by-year basis but on 
an upward curve. Of the 1972 graduates, an exceptionally 
high 83 percent indicated that they would return toS.U. again 
if the opportunity arose. Overall, for the eleven years sur- 
veyed, a very satisfactory 72 percent of the graduates said 
they would return to Susquehanna. 

More Specifically: Alumni Talk About S.U. 

.As a follow-up to the broad questionnaire, the Universi- 
ty asked a sample group of 15 alumni from the same era to 
more fully detail their impressions about Susquehanna, its 
academic program, and the quality of their education. These 
profiles are excerpted here with permission and appear in the 
chronological sequence of each respondent's graduation from 
S.U. An attempt was made to acquire a representative 
breakdown by major fields of study. It may be of interest to 
note changes in emphasis from the earlier grads' opinions to 
those of later years. In addition, there would appear to be a 
common thread throughout which would indicate that the 
S.U. education is basically sound, but that certain areas of 
improvement are suggested and weaknesses noted. It is these 
latter comments — constructive criticism — which most in- 
terest us. For, as President Weber has stated, "Susquehanna 
cannot approach the future with a sense of complacency. 
Given the fact that our own educational goals of combining 
the liberal arts with certain career emphasis is sound, we must 
endeavor to find new ways of doing a better job of teaching 
that which is relevant."

I felt that the preparation I received at Susquehanna was as 
good as any received by my medical school classmates. 

The liberal arts courses were extremely valuable. It was 
the only time during my formal education that liberal arts 
courses were available. 

Susquehanna's educational program was very good. In 
general, the faculty does keep abreast of developments in 
their fields and I would say that at least 80 percent were good 
or very good.

Curriculum at S.U. was good as far as it went. Since it is a 
small school, a number of advanced specialized courses could 
not be offered, or were offered every other year. I believe I 
took every biology course available. A course in immunology 
would have been helpful to me. 

S.U.'s educational program is a good program, as good 
as a small school can offer. In the sciences I noted that a ma- 
jority of the faculty was knowledgeable and up to date, had 
concern for students, and had interesting class presentations. 

Living in dorm life at S.U. was like living in a dream 
world — very secure. Anything to bring contact with the out- 
side world could only be better. 



Any weakness at S.U., other than that of any small 
college's inability to offer a wider variety of courses, reverts 
to the faculty. My attitude is that Susquehanna's purpose is to 
teach, to broaden, to stimulate its students. Many larger 
schools lose sight of this and become over-engrossed in 
research and publications. S.U. has everything going for it in 
this area. Seventy-five percent of the teachers are effective, 
but the University must find ways to ferret out those who 
can't teach, or at least work with them in an effort to make 
them more effective.

this well-rounded atmosphere. The size of the class did not 
seem to matter. If individual attention was needed or sought, 
it was there. I would hope that in the necessary course of 
change this atmosphere and the high standards it engenders

The curriculum was generally good. My only complaint 
with the language program is the stress on reading and 
translation. More emphasis is needed on conversation and

writing. These are skills that I could have used more directly 
in my teaching. 

I sincerely feel that most of the courses I took as an un- 
dergraduate were of good quality. Perhaps most significant 
for me was the fact that I did get to know many of my profs 
personally. I came to respect them as individuals. Many are 
still close friends.

The coursework in chemistry was covered adequately in 
depth. Scientists need to take advantage of management,

It is my opinion that the thought patterns and analytical 
process were sufficiently developed at Susquehanna. The 
liberal arts courses are very important in the pursuit of the 
legal profession. 

Although I was a history major at Susquehanna, I also 
studied courses in political science, sociology, economics and 
business. It is my opinion that because of the curriculum 
structure at the University, I benefited from the various 
courses of study available. 

Generally, it is my opinion that S.U. offers a quality 
academic program to students in preparation for future 
careers. Of course, certain academic departments of the 
University are higher in quality than others. It is my feeling 
that the History Department is excellent with good instruc- 
tors. However, as always, certain teachers still depend on out- 
dated knowledge of the subject matter.

Susquehanna did adequately prepare me for my first job in 
teaching. An important part was the experience I had at the 
Sehnsgrove State School and Hospital as a volunteer. 

The small class size and personal relationships with my 
professors together with the chance to become involved in stu- 
dent activities provided good background for post-college ac- 

I wish that I had taken more business and economics 
courses, as I run my own corporation and could use that kind 
of expertise. 

S.U. gave me a chance to prove myself in extracurricular 
activities as well as in classes. Responsibility gave me con- 
fidence and leadership experience. Involving students in cam- 
pus decisions and committees is most important.

S.U. prepared me well for my current profession, but there 
could have been more emphasis on current readings. 

The coursework was sufficiently comprehensive, but I 
wish we had had more practicum opportunities and seminars. 

Perhaps there is too much structure and not enough 
freedom to pursue individual interests. 

As I work toward completion of my doctorate I seem to 
be better prepared than most others. 

Susquehanna must support and foster more creative and 
individual thought among students. 1 felt that my background 
was too formal and traditional.

My coursework at Susquehanna gave me an excellent 
background for teaching secondary math. I honestly feel that 
my liberal arts courses gave me a well-rounded education, 
and the ability to analyze and think. 

My math and psychology courses obviously were most 
important in preparing me for working with both students 
and teachers. But, even though I majored in mathematics, my 
interest in literature was pursued at S.U. This led me to 
become involved as co-director of four class plays in high

My coursework provided me with a sound basis for pursuing 
graduate studies. Overall, I found the professors to be 
stimulating which, in turn, facilitates development of the 
thought processes. 

Regardless of major, the liberal arts courses like art and 
music were advantageous. They have made relating to the 
cultural aspects of our society more meaningful. 

I believe that Susquehanna's curriculum in mathematics 
was broad and both practical (i.e., computer science, 
statistics) and theoretical (i.e., abstract algebra) courses were 
offered. These have proven extremely valuable in my field. 

The faculty and institution, in general, are preparing 
students to make a contribution in the real world.

tools — it is in essence an accumulation of resourcefulness. 
One cannot expect to retain a great bulk of technical 
knowledge, but to come away ready to face problem-solving 
by knowing where to find and how to use the information one 
needs is of paramount importance. My first position after 
graduation was as a marketing research analyst for a major

Since graduation from S.U. I've been associated with 
two other institutions of higher education and I continue to 
feel very proud of my background at S.U. The curriculum, 
and even more importantly perhaps, the quality of instruction 
is on a par with, if not in many instances superior to, that 
which I've seen elsewhere. 

I believe that I have always felt as adequately prepared 
for graduate studies as any of my peers. I suppose attending 
an undergraduate school that has a graduate program at that 
same institution could, in some cases, have its advantages. 
But, I certainly never felt at a disadvantage.

The liberal arts curriculum provided a necessary general 
background of education for dealing with the public and 
business worlds. In addition, as a history major I was taught 
to look and analyze cause-and-effect relationships. This is 
valuable in any realm of endeavor.

S.U. provided me with a firm base in the theories of psy-

took a practicum with the Youth Services Bureau in Sunbury 
and did some work at the Selinsgrove State School and 

I don't think that one should expect the undergraduate 
school to train for a particular job. However, I think S.U. 
provided a good foundation in preparing me for my career. 

The course requirements are flexible enough to allow the 
student who is unsure of a major time to make a decision. 

Susquehanna prepared me well for my graduate studies. 
In fact, many of S.U. 's courses I had to re-take as graduate 
work. Would suggest, however, that Susquehanna include 
more work in learning disabilities.

I feel that S.U., overall, prepared me very well subjectwise. 
The secret to upward mobility is the ability to think creative- 
ly. All educational institutions have the responsibility to 
provide the student with facts, the ability to make use of them. 

and to use them as stepping-stones for further knowledge. 
Unfortunately, not all schools do this, but I can honestly say 
that S.U. has left me with a sense of values and standards 
«hich give me a fine base. 

Hven though today's world is extremely specialized, it is 
not an excuse for one to hide in his own little world. In- 
dividuals need as much knowledge in other areas as they have 
in their major area. Hence, a liberal arts background is essen- 

.As with other schools, S.U. has certain weaknesses. But, 
m\ impression of Susquehanna as an educational institution 
can be summed up in two words: Very Good. 



General accounting supervisor,

My Susquehanna education qualified me for the position, 
but, as with most positions, all the training had to be done on 
the job. 

S.U. provided the necessary depth in accounting, but 
since my responsibilities are mostly managerial, I should 
have taken more human relations and management courses. 

Susquehanna provided me with a general academic 
background in business, but there should be less restrictions 
on core requirements so that an individual may find and 
develop his talents in areas of interest.

I feel that I received an adequate chemistry background at 
Susquehanna. However, as in so many jobs today, an inten- 
sive training program must follow the undergraduate ex- 
perience — particularly in my field of pigments. 

The depth of coursework, at least in the sciences, was 
good. I feel that I have the basics to approach problems in 
several areas. It would be nice, however, if a system could be 
devised with liberal arts courses related to specific majors. 
For example, instead of a chem major taking just a history 
course, he might take a history of science course. A science 
writing course would also be good!

Susquehanna did not adequately prepare me for my first job. 
Susquehanna did, however, give me the opportunity to 
demonstrate my ability to perform satisfactorily by achieving 
above-average grades in a broad range of subject matter. My 
employer did not expect that I would have the technical ex- 
pertise necessary to perform my job. 

It isn't so much the depth incourse work at Susquehanna 
that helped me develop my thought processes as the breadth 
of coursework. S.U.'s curriculum provided me with the op- 
portunity to learn a little about a broad range of topics 
together with an emphasis on business related subjects. 
I feel that it is very important to be conversant and 



somewhat knowledgeable on a broad range of topics. The 
required liberal arts courses I took provided valuable ex- 

S.U.'s curriculum is a demanding one. The opportunity 
to participate in an internship at a local bank proved to be ab- 
solutely invaluable.

Susquehanna did fulfill my needs, both educationally and 
socially. The small liberal arts college offers invaluable op- 
portunities for one to mature to an adult level and become 
ready for the real world. 

Liberal arts courses are valuable even though the in- 
troductory ones didn't provide me with in-depth studies of the 
subject matter. They did serve to give a well-rounded outlook 
on many divergent subjects. 

Concerning the S.U. curriculum, in some areas 1 could 
have been better trained but, on the whole, 1 feel that I am 
quite well-equipped to cope with my adjustment both to 
profession and to life. 

As in any college, some areas of instruction are better 
than others. On the whole, however, the educational stand- 
ards of S.U. are quite high and I am quite proud to have 
graduated from such an institution. 

ROGER P. GUNDERSEN 75, New York. N.V. 


Staff Accountant. Price Waterhouse & Co. 
Susquehanna adequately prepared me in two ways: First, in 
my field and as preparation for the C.P.A. exams; second, 
through the practical experience I gained through the ac- 
counting internship. 

Even though I was an accounting major, my exposure to 
liberal arts courses gave me a perspective that I see lacking in 
some others in this profession. 

S.U.'s curriculum is broad, and I believe my course of 
study, although majoring in accounting, also provided me 
with preparation for entry into many other areas without any 
need for apprehension. 

I believe that S.U. offers a quality program. Most of the 
profs kept abreast of current happenings in their fields and 
were successful in transmitting this knowledge. 

What to look for in a college . . . 

GORDON: For the student wanting a smattering of 
everything and the chance to be recognized as an individual, 
the small liberal arts college is ideal. This type of institution 
will provide the undecided student with many opportunities to 
try out the various course offerings available until he/she 
finally decides. If the student recognizes his needs before 
entering college, the school should be closely looked at re- 
garding major areas and their strengths. 

HILFERTY: Stay flexible, try lots of different courses, take a 
chance on a challenging course. Build a base for many career 
opportunities or at least more than one. Become involved in 
student activities and get leadership experience in clubs, the 
dorm life, etc. 

AMBACHER: Consider size — I feel there are advantages 
(more selection of courses) at the larger schools, but for me 
the atmosphere, unity and friendliness, and more interaction 
with teachers was equally important. Make certain that the 
course of study you are taking is one which gives you the 
chance for employment. 

MICHAEL: (a) College choice depends primarily on the kind 
of education and environment desired, ability to compete 
academically, and resources, (b) Career choice is the begin- 
ning of college choice. It is, and should be, what the individual 
wants to do and then cross-matched with capabilities. The 
result sought is a fulfilling lifetime career. One must ask if 
college is really necessary then to attain the career choice, (c) 
The college career is an investment. Course selection is made 
as an individual seeks to build his personal portfolio of usable 

BOUCHER: It would be my advice to students who wish to 
pursue a business curriculum leading to a business degree to 
seek an institution offering a broad range of liberal arts 
courses in addition to the business courses. Prospective 
employers are favorably impressed with would-be employees 
having a broad background with emphasis in a particular 

UPPERCO: (a) Choose a college that will offer the courses 
that will develop your interest, one where you'll feel comfor- 
table with the atmosphere, size and environment, (b) Choose 
a career that you can be enthusiastic about and one that will 
satisfy your needs, (c) General computer courses (what they 
can do, etc.), courses that help develop writing and oral skills 
are terribly important. 

SCHUMACHER: The student should be aware of his or her 
needs as to the size of the institution. For my preference, the 
college should be only large enough so as to assure adequate 
course and degree selection. Size is of importance, as I believe 
the advantages of a small college far outweigh many other 
considerations. Friendliness is important, and here is one of 
Susquehanna's finest assets. 

STOKER: (a) Select a small college — I think the personal 
contact offered at S.U. was very important. I got direct en- 
couragement when things were tough or when I thought of 
taking a semester off. (b) Don't be forced into a job. You have 
to live with yourself and should be happy in your work, (c) 
Take as many courses in your specialty area as early as possi- 
ble. I would encourage some work experience in the junior 
year, if possible, so that students will know what their chosen 
profession will be like.

THE '76ers REPORT 

Once again, The Alumnus presents a report on the current activities and 
whereabouts of the most recent Susquehanna graduating class. There were 350 
undergraduate degrees granted in 1976 and at the time this material was 
prepared 222 of the 76ers had responded to the Alumni Office query— about 
63 percent. The pattern of their residences remains fairly consistent with 
that of other recent classes— although many are on the move, the majority are 
located in the Middle Atlantic area including 121 in Pennsylvania, 33 in New 
Jersey, 19 in New York, and 14 in Maryland. A number of other states are 
represented and two graduates are outside the U.S. As for occupations, some 
are engaged in temporary employment and some are not yet placed. The tally 
shows 66 in business, banking or insurance, 53 doing graduate work, 23 
teaching, 17 in accounting, 10 in service occupations. Others are in computers, 
government, radio and newspapers, armed forces, college admissions. Why not 
read about them for yourself? . . .

WINTER 1977 


A Wet One 
and A Dry One 

HOM ECOM 1 NG 1 976 was one of the wettest on record. The 
rain was pouring down for Friday night's special Founders 
Day Convocation and Dedication of the Physical Education 
Center, and It kept precipitating right on through Saturday, 
forcing a number of activities indoors. But two weeks later, 
for Parents Weekend, the sun shone bright and warm, 
families gathered, and the Crusader football team responded 
with its first victory of the season, a 28-14 thriller over 
Delaware Valley College. Wet or dry, there were many 
satisfied visitors to Susquehanna during the fall — happy to 
see one another and very excited to have a firsthand look at 
the new Phys Ed Center, swimming pool, and other features 
of this fine facility. 

At Convocation, physical fitness authority Dr. Kenneth H. 
Cooper of the Aerobics Center in Dallas. Tex., told his 
listeners that Americans are not really dying prematurely, 
"they are killing themselves off" because they don't stay in 
shape The event was combined with dedication of the new SU 
Phys Ed Center and swimming pool. Dr Cooper was given an 
honorary L.H D degree. .Also honored, below: The Rev John W. 
Vannorsdall. chaplain at Yale University. D.D.: his escort Dr. 
David .\ iViley: The i'ery Rev. Ronald C. D. Jasper, dean of York, 
England. Lill.D.: Paul Boeder, authority on optics and a 
onetime SU professor. Sc.D.. his escort Dr. Fred A. Crosse: 
Cooper escort Bruce S. Wagenseller. Chaplain Edgar S. 
Brown served as escort for Dean Jasper. 


Keeping dry was the order of 
Homecoming, whether silling in 
the stands, running cross 
country, or whatever. Things 
were glum for Coach Hazlell as 
his gridders lost 20-6 and the 
harriers lost 24-31 . both to 
Juniata. The inimitable Don 
Miller presided over the indoor 
Tailgate Picnic amidst whimsical 
George Bucher sculptures. .Above:

WINTER 1977 


ZU Sports 


THE FIRST Crusader Classic basketball lourney in Sus- 
quehanna's Physical Education Center was a great success 
from the fans" point of view. Combined attendance for the 
two nights was about 3000, and they saw four well-played and 
closely-contested games. Gettysburg captured two one-point 
victories to take the championship, upsetting Shippensburg 
State 59-58 in the opener and nipping Susquehanna 60-59 in 
the finale. The Crusaders topped Swarthmore 70-63 in their 
Hrst game in their new home. In the consolation, Shippens- 
burg came away with an 81-65 win over Swarthmore after a 
37-37 tie at halftime. Crusader Mike Scheib '78 (Millers- 
burg, Pa.) was named the tourney MVP. 

The S.U. five followed with wins over Juniata, Lock 
Haven State and Messiah, while losing to .Albright and 
Wilkes, to take a 4-3 mark into Christmas vacation. Bob 
Hertzog '77 (Atlas, Pa.), 6-9 center, led the Crusaders in 
scoring and rebounding after seven games, averaging 17 
points and 13 rebounds per game. Forward Dave Atkinson 
'77 (Carbondale, Pa.) had 13 points and seven rebounds per 
game: Scheib 16 points per game and 27 assists; and guard 
Ron Brett '77 (Wyncote, Pa.) an ll-point average and 33 
assists. The team averaged 69 points while giving up 65 per 

.After two meets, the S.U. wrestling team was still 
looking for its first win. Thegrapplerslost to Juniata 37-7 and 
Messiah 38-7. The only winners for the Crusaders against 
Juniata were Tom Dunbar '80 (Millport, N.Y.) at 134 lbs. 
and Joel Tokarz '80 (Ossining, N.Y.) at 158, and against 
Messiah Bob Williams '78 (Stratford, N.J.) at 142 and Bill 
Guslitus '78 (Minersville. Pa.) in the heavyweight class. 

As this is written, the women's basketball team is hard at 
work preparing for its season, which starts Jan. 8. Just one 
win is all it would take to make a successful campaign for the 
S.U. women, who have lost 28 in a row dating back to 1973. 
None of the players on the current squad has yet known vic- 
tory at Susquehanna. The top two players from last year 
return: Sherry Rohm '79 (Blain, Pa.) and Janeen Kruse '79 

(Sparta. N.J.).

Long '76 (Doylestown, Pa.). 14 points and 10 rebounds from 
Paul Hinsch '74 (Plainview, N.Y.), and 8 points and 10

The Alumni gave the varsity all it could handle for about 
three-quarters of the game before the undergrads pulled away 
down the stretch. If a few more alumni had turned out, to 
allow for more rest periods, the outcome might have been 
different. The Alumni led 8-2 in the early going, trailed 39-32 
at halftime, tied the score at 49 early in the second half, and 
were down by only two points, 57-55, with about 10 minutes

For the last four years Susquehanna had one of the best 
distance runners in the Middle Atlantic Conference in Jeff 
Yoder '76 of Mt. Carmel, Pa. Now it appears that S.U. will 
have one of the best distance runners in the MAC for the next 
four years in Russ Stevenson "80 of Wyckoff, N.J. Crusader 
Cross Country Coach Bruce Wagenseller thought it would be 
a while before he would have another runner like Yoder. A 
pre-season release from the Public Information Office said 
"Yoder leaves S.U. harriers with fast shoes to fill." Well, no 
one had counted on Stevenson, a freshman "walk-on" who 
was not even on the pre-season roster. Stevenson was a race- 
winner right from the start, and by the end of the season had 
broken Yoder's record for the S.U. course and then further 
lowered his own new standard with a time of 24:09 for the 4.9 
miles. Stevenson also set the Wilkes course record in a race in 

But it takes more than one man to make a cross country 
team, and Stevenson had a supporting cast that was high in 
quality if not in numbers. Although the size of the squad 
dwmdled to only six, that "hard core" demonstrated a great 

deal of "desire, determination, and durability" (Wagensel- 
ler's "Three-D"s"). Their 7-6 record was the only winning 
mark among S.U. varsity fall sports squads, and was the 
harriers" lOth winning record in the last 13 years. Pressuring 
Stevenson throughout the season was Chris Thiede "78 
(Melville, N.Y.), who came within one second of Yoder's old 
S.U. record of 24:39. Thiede received the coach"s Three-D 
award while Stevenson was named Outstanding Freshman. 
Others contributing were Dan Ditzler "77 (Houston, Tex.), 
Chris Haidinger '80(Pompton Lakes, N.J.), Dave Nelson "79 
(Croton Falls, N.Y.), and Jon Eich "77 (Carmel, N.Y.). 
Stevenson also ran well in the Harrisburg marathon (26 
miles) and raised $750 for the Selinsgrove Area United Way 
from over 300 students who pledged 10 cents per mile. 

Some S.U. footballers joke about the schedule. If we 
started the season against Delaware Valley and Wilkes in- 
stead of with Westminster and other powerhouses, they say, 
we might enjoy more success. For the second year in a row, 
the Crusader eleven dropped the first six games before com- 
ing back to win the last three. And for the second straight 
year, it was a win over Delaware Valley that broke the losing 
streak, followed the next week by a victory over Wilkes. The 
difference in 1976 was that the final win came at FDU- 
Madison rather than over Waynesburg as in 1975. Of course, 
the reason for this annual turn-around has something to do 
with the relative strengths of the opponents. But it does seem 
likely that if the Crusaders could get a victory under their 

WINTER 1977 


belts earlier, they might develop enough confidence to knock 
off some of the tougher foes. 

Presentation of most valuable player awards often 
generates some controversy and second-guessing of the selec- 
tion, but not this year at Susquehanna. It would be hard to 
find a critic of the coaches' choice of defensive back Brad 
Moore '77 of Old Saybrook, Conn., who received the Clyde 
Spil/.ner Memorial Trophy from Dr. Weber at the annual 
Quarterback Club banquet. .Although he did not get the out- 
side recognition he deserved, Moore must rank among the 
best athletes in S.U. history. With 52 tackles and 21 assists, 
he led the team in tackling, an unusual achievement for a 
defensive back, and had two interceptions. .At 5-8 and 150 
lbs., he also won the coaches' Most .Aggressive award. 

One unusual aspect of the 1976 Crusader season was the 
number of long touchdown plays. Moore returned an in- 
terception 85 years for a TD against Wilkes, and defensive 
back .Aaron Van Pelt '80 (Berwick, Pa.) ran one back 35 
yards in the same game, which also featured a 78-yard TD 
dash by fullback Paul O'Neill '78 (Stratford, N.J.), the 
longest play from scrimmage of the season for S.U. O'Neill 
also had TD runs of 50 and 60 yards, and was the team's 
leading rusher with 634 yards and si.x touchdowns on 120 

For the third year in a row, an S.U. quarterback was the 
leading passer in the M AC-North, and for the second straight 
\ear a Crusader split end led the receivers. Hadley Brown '77 
(Millersburg, Pa.) led the passers while John Xanthis '77 
(Newburgh, N.Y.) headed the receivers. Last year Brown led 
the passers and Jeff Steltz '76 topped the receivers. In 1974, 
Mike Buterbaugh '75 topped the passers. For the season. 
Brown completed 77 of 186 attempts for 848 yards and five 
touchdow ns. He set a new school record for pass completions 
in one game when he had 22 in the loss to Upsala. BobO'Gara 
in 1947 and Rich Young in 1950 each had 20. Xanthis caught 
41 passes for 497 yards and three TDs. His 41 receptions is a 
new S.U. mark for one season, eclipsing .Steltz's 39 in 1974. 
Steltz still holds the yardage mark with 539. 

Other coaching staff awards went to tailback and defen- 
sive back Pete Burton '78 (Chatham, N.J.), Best Back; offen- 
sive guard Mike Monahan '77 (Rockville, Md.), Best 
Lineman; defensive end Joe Stein '78 (Oak Ridge, N.J.), 
Most Improved; halfback Brian Sprague'80(Edinboro, Pa.), 
Best Rookie; tailback Carl Manfredi '80 (Hazleton, Pa.), 
Best Reserve Back; and defensive end Bob Naulty '80 (West- 
field, N.J.), Best Reserve Lineman. O'Neill received all- 
MAC-North honors while Xanthis, Monahan, Brown, 
Moore, and offensive tackle Gerry Huesken (Palmyra, N.J.) 
got honorable mention. 

sion over the same Lycoming team they had opened against. 
Quarterback Tom O'Neill '80 (West Reading, Pa.) threw 
eight TD passes mcluding four to split end Keith Anderson 
'80 (York, Pa.) 

Soccer Coach Neil Potter called it "one of those years." 
Although the hooters played consistently fine soccer and out- 
shot most opponents, they had trouble putting their shots in 
the goal and came out with a 4-7-2 record. Epitomizing their 
frustration was the outcome of the five games that went into 
overtime: three losses and two ties. Among these was a 1-0 
loss to NCA.A tourney-bound Bucknell. For a losing team, 
the Crusaders had an unbelievable shot advantage of 301-194 
for the season. Noting that seven freshmen earned letters. Dr. 
Potter anticipates better success in the near future. 

The coach's Best Defensive Player award went to 
fullback Howie Baker '79 (Baskmg Ridge, N.J.) who was 
named to the all-MAC-North second team along with half- 
back Tom Cook '78 (Loysville, Pa.). The Most Improved 
award went to forward Dave Odenath '79 (Plymouth 
Meeting, Pa.), who had two goals and three assists. Sharing 
the Best Rookie award were forward Keith Lewis '80 
(Freehold, N.J.), three goals and three assists, and fullback 
Steve Brugger '80 ( Westfield, N.J.). Forward and co-captain 
Bruce Fehn '77 (West Caldwell, N.J.) led in scoring with five 
goals and two assists. Forward Rob Hazel '77 (Chesapeake 
City, Md.) had five goals and one assist and set a new record 
for career goals with 19. Dan Travelet '66 had the old mark of 

Jim Handlan of the Mathematics Department took over 
the assistant coaching duties and the jayvee team presented 
him with its only victory on his birthday. 

The S.U. field hockey team also had a frustrating 
season. The women played well everywhere but in front of the 
opposition goal where they had difficulty getting the ball in 
the net. They scored only one win while losing seven. But ex- 
cept for lopsided losses to Shippensburg State and Bucknell, 
they were in every game until the end. Right-inner Sue Booth 
'77 (Media, Pa.) was named the squad's Outstanding Player 
and earned selection on the Susquehanna Valley and Mid- 
East Regional all-star squads. Also given Most Valuable 
recognition by Coach Connie Delbaugh were halfback Betsy 
Hall '77 (Riverton, N.J.) and fullback JoAnnKinker78 (Red 
Lion. Pa.). Forwards Anne Guckes '78 (West Chester, Pa,) 
and Audrey Klijian '78 (Media, Pa.) led in scoring with two 
goals apiece. 

Manfredi and Naulty earned their awards as members of 
the most successful jayvee football team in Susquehanna 
history. The Little Knights, under the tutelage of Coaches Bill 
Moll and Bob Muirhead. effected a remarkable comeback. 
After a 46-6 opening game defeat at Lycoming, a loss that 
would have totally demoralized most teams, they bounced 
back to win their last four games. The extent of their progress 
is evidenced by the fact that the final victory was a 7-0 deci- 

Sports opportunities for women were expanded this fall 
with the initiation of a Volleyball Club. Handicapped by inex- 
perience and lack of practice time because of gym construc- 
tion, the team failed to win any matches against clubs from 
other colleges. However, under the leadership of Kathy 
Lehman '78 (York, Pa.), the club laid the foundation for what 
could develop into an official intercollegiate athletic team in 
the future.

Susquehanna U niversity has initiated 
a regular Speakers Bureau intended to 
serve Selinsgrove and the surrounding 
area. Several members of the faculty 
and staff have volunteered to speak or 
present other programs on a variety of 
topics to community groups, organiza- 
tions, and schools. 

A flyer describing the programs has 
been circulated in the area and ad- 
ditional copies are available from the 
Office of Public Information, coor- 
dinator of the bureau. 

The program is an outgrowth of the 
faculty's Bicentennial Speakers Bureau 
which operated successfully during 
1976. The new list of speakers includes 
one of the most popular Bicentennial at- 
tractions. Benjamin Franklin portrayed 
in costume by Dr. Fred A. Grosse. 
professor of physics. 

Other speakers are Jean B. Beam- 
enderfer '39 on Early American .Art, 
Chaplain Edgar S. Brown Jr on Church 
and the University and Liturgy and 
Life. Dean of Students Edward J. 
Malloy on Today's College Students 
and Is College for You?. Dorothy 
Masom on Techniques of Oil Painting. 
Dr. Marjorie W. McCune '43 on 
Women and Poetry.

A study of institutional trends for 
each college and university related to 
the Lutheran Church in America has 
been approved by the management 
committee of the LCA's Division for 
Mission in North America to provide 
early warning of problems "which 
predictably will arise in the next 

The studv is expected "to determine 
institutional health and directions" so 
that difficulties can be better an- 
ticipated and the division enabled to 
assist more effectively. 

Included in the study would be such 
matters as financial audit status and 
trends, enrollment trends, debt and sur- 
plus trends, synodical support trends, 
tenure percentages and trends, per- 
sonnel trends and profiles, and building 

Information gathered would be "se- 
lectively used" to help the college or 
university in need and to help the synod 
and the division "to understand better 
their roles and responsibilities." 

Susquehanna is one of 1 8 colleges and 
universities related to the Lutheran 
Church in America. 

Bible. Bruce S. Wagenseller on Scuba 
Diving and Jogging and Physical Fit- 
ness, and Kenneth J. Wise on Coop- 
erative Education and Indonesia. 

In addition, the University's ad- 
missions staff is available to speak on 
the college admissions picture and 
financial aid. and the Music Depart- 
ment provides student and faculty 
soloists and groups for performance 
and demonstration. 



A group of Susquehanna faculty 
members is taking part voluntarily in a 
Teaching Strategies Workshop to be 
brought up to date on the current 
theories, concepts and assumptions 
about the improvement of leaching in 
higher education. Conducted by outside 
consultants, the workshop focuses on 
the dynamics of the teaching-learning 
process and is designed to provide par- 
ticipants with opportunity to: 

1) explore the interrelationships be- 
tween teaching styles, learning styles, 
course content, and educational en- 

2) identify their own teaching style 
and the associated assumptions and 

3) identify student learning styles 
and compare the effect of teaching 
styles on various learning styles; 

4) discuss teaching strategies and 

5) participate in planning further on- 
campus activities focusing on the im- 
provement of teaching. 

One segment of the workshop took 
place the first weekend in April and 
another Is scheduled for after Com- 
mencement. Co-chairing the activity 
are Dr. Kenneth O. Fladmark. profes- 
sor of business administration, and Dr. 
James A. Blessing '63, assistant pro- 
fessor of political science.

the first time. Dodge had more than the 
usual number of requests. 

One newcomer in 1977 is Camp 
Camelot, a New York-based organi- 
zation which operates half a dozen 
such facilities where overweight young 
women can "slim 'n trim down." Swim-

of the program. The camp will run for 
seven weeks.

departments. Artist Series, and other 
student- and faculty-sponsored pro-

stages more than its share of public 
events. And the month of March 1977 
was unusually full. 

Within a two-week period the Uni- 
versity hosted the rock group Kansas, 
professional amateur George Plimp- 
ton, I9ih century .American poet Emily 
Dickinson, the country's premier choir 
the Roger Wagner Chorale, and for- 
mer CIA director William Colby. .Ml 
but Miss Dickinson were on campus in 
person, while she was present In spirit 
during a Women's Week program spon- 
sored by Associated Women Students. 

An SRO crowd saw Kansas as a few 
dozen more with counterfeit tickets 
listened from outside Weber Chapel 
Auditorium. The show was the fastest 
sellout in the history of the building, 
prompting some Williamsporl area en- 
trepreneur to issue the fake billets. 

Other public events during the same 
two-week period included three student- 
directed one-act plays, assorted student 
recitals, and concerts by the Chamber 
Orchestra and .Svmphonic Band. Janu- 
ary rivaled March with Jose Ferrer and 
Jacques Cousteau's son Jean-Michel.

ONE STUDENT likes to work with children and plans 
to do so as a career; another is fascinated with animal 
behavior and wants to do field studies; one is business- 
oriented and might go into personnel work or labor 
relations; another eyes medical school and a career as a 
psychiatrist. Criminal law. social work, or the ministry 
are the interests of still others. And some have no 
definite goals in mind, but are drawn to the field by a 
desire to understand human motivation. There is a 
common bond uniting all these different individuals: 
they are all majoring in psychology at Susquehanna 

A key strength of the Psychology Department at 
Susquehanna is a breadth of scope and purpose that is 

unusual at a school of its size. Major concerns include 
theory and basic information, research and practical 
experience, and interaction with and service to the sur- 
rounding community. 

As in any discipline, students must begin their 
study by learning the field's basic body of knowledge 
and by understanding its main theories which attempt 
to explain that information and organize it into a 
coherent whole. 

Although psychology is grouped in the Division of 
Social Sciences, it also has affinities to the natural 
sciences and mathematics. At the risk of over- 
simplification, it can be said that the natural sciences 
emphasize experimentation and inductive "proof 

SPRING 1977 

while the social sciences stress theory and deductive 
reasoning. The natural sciences are associated with the 
laboratory, the social sciences with the library. One 
studies nature, the other studies society. 

Psychology, however, operates in both spheres. 
The psychologist is interested in understanding the 
processes of learning, personality development, moti- 
vation, emotion, thought, memory, and communica- 
tion. These are largely invisible to the naked eye. the 
telescope, or the microscope. Because of this lack of 
real "data." many natural scientists argue that psy- 
chology can never be truly "scientific." But psycholo- 
gy is also unlike other social sciences in that it delves 
into therapy and clinical treatment of individuals. In 
order to do this effectively, psychologists must strive 
for some element of certitude and predictability. 

This duality of scope and purpose makes the duali- 
t> of theory and practice especially important to the 
psychologist. Many small colleges lack the facilities, 
funds, and faculty expertise to give their psychology 
students much opportunity to engage in research and 
gain other practical experience. However, one of the 
great strengths of the Psychology Department at Sus- 
quehanna is that it does provide these opportunities. 

Many of these experiences come through prac- 
ticums or internships with other institutions and agen- 
cies in the Selinsgrove area, such as the State School 
and Hospital (now called The Selinsgrove Center). 
Geisinger Medical Center. Snyder County Office of 
Aging. Snyder County Day Care Center, the public 
school system, drug and alcohol abuse programs, and 
homes for juvenile delinquents. 

While Susquehanna students benefit from ex- 
posure to these situations, the University also hopes 
that the cooperating agencies benefit from the energy 
and dedication of the students and the expertise of the 
facult\. Throughout its 1 18-year history, Susquehanna 
has sought to provide services to the surrounding com- 
munity through all the University's programs and 
facilities. Included in this outreach is the Adult Hvening 
Program in which members of the psychology faculty 
are active. Also, the Psychology Department is a 
cosponsor, along with its counterparts at Bucknell 
University and Lycoming College. oftheCeniral Penn- 
sylvania Lecture Series in Psychology which brings 
several noted guest speakers to the area each \ear. 

Susquehanna students can major in psychology as 
part of an undergraduate curriculum leading to the 
bachelor of arts degree. Majors are required to lake ten

individual research in developmenlal psychology. 

courses in psychology, and supporting courses in 
biology, sociology and anthropology, philosophy, and 
mathematics are recommended by the department, in 
addition to other University Core Requirements. One 
of the strengths of the University's curriculum, which 
applies to all fields as well as psychology, is the fiexibili- 
ty which allows students to tailor their own individual 
program to meet personal and career goals. 

Recently the family of Petite Brogan "74. a psy- 
chology major who died in May 1975 of a heart ail- 
ment, established an endowed scholarship fund in her 
memor_\. The income from the Petite M. K. Brogan 
Memorial Scholarship Fund is to be awarded annually 
to psychology students who show both academic 
promise and financial need. 

Most professional psychologists have advanced 
training beyond the bachelor's degree, and Susquehan-

charge, is new full-time social services coordinator. 

na"s curriculum is consistent with the admissions re- 
quirements of most graduate schools. Since most areas 
of specialization within the general discipline of psy- 
chology require further study, undergraduates are not 
required to specialize. However, students have a wide 
choice of electives which serve as an introduction to 
various specialties such as clinical, counseling and 
guidance, comparative and physiological, learning and 
motivation, industrial and personnel, educational and 
school, social and personality, developmental, testing, 
and human engineering. 

Regardless of course offerings, any department is 
only as strong as its faculty, and the Psychology De- 
partment at Susquehanna is particularly blessed in this 
regard. All five full-time department members hold the 
Ph.D. degree and three have attained the rank of full 
professor. All are research-oriented, have had the

results of their findings published in various scholarly 
journals, and are active in professional associations. 
At the same time, they fit the Susquehanna mold in 
that each is primarily concerned with excellence in the 
teaching of undergraduates. Each is involved in daily 
work with students in classroom and laboratory and is 
readily available for individual consultation. 

In addition, faculty members frequently invite 
students into their homes for both serious discussion 
and socialization. Facult\ and student contact is also 
enhanced b) mutual membership in the Susquehanna 
chapter of Psi Chi, the national psychology honor 

The full-time faculty consists of Professors Philip 
C. Bossart. Charles E. Lyle and James E. Misanin. and 
.Assistant Professors G. Edward -Schueikert III and 
W illiani (i. Krieger. .Also ser\ing the department on a 
part-time basis is Assistant Professor Warren .1. Pirie.

All psychology majors are encouraged to either 
engage in practicum experiences or undertake indepen- 
dent research projects during the junior and senior 
years. Research topics vary widely depending on the in- 
terests of students and faculty.

Last \ear students of Dr. Krieger assisted with a 
project concerned with the jury decision-making 
process, learning how such factors as whether a defen- 
dant is ph\sicail\ handicapped can affect a jury. Dr. 
Sch\\eii<ert advised students who studied the effects of 
caffeine ingestion in rats and Dr. Misanin directed stu- 
dent research into the effects of hyperthermia 
(overheating) on memory in rats. Students of Dr. 
Schweikert also investigated the relationship between 
transcendental meditation and brain wave activity. 

Two years ago Mary McManus '75 produced an 
unusual and interesting report in which she related her 
experiences and findings as a participant-observer 
when she spent a period of time living with residents at 
the Selinsgrove Slate School and Hospital. In past 
years several Susquehanna students, with faculty 
assistance, have had their work published in profes- 
sional journals, a significant experience and achieve- 
ment which is unusual for undergraduates. 

While the department is proud of its research ac- 
tivities, it is also an area in which there is room for 
further improvement. A perennial problem of ob- 
taining funds for equipment has eased somewhat in re- 
cent years through receipt of government grants. 
However, the department feels a great need for a new 
laboratory building. 

Currently there are two animal research labs 
located in former residences at some distance apart on 
University Avenue. These include faculty offices as 
well as experimentation rooms and cages for animals, 
and lack sufficient space. Other offices, classrooms, 
and human research facilities, including an observation 
room with one-way window and monitoring console, 
are located in Steele Hall, a building also used by the 

History. Political Science, and Business departments. 
This arrangement makes the Psychology Department 
one of the most dispersed groups on campus. The 
University administration has approved a proposal for 
a new psychology research building, but the exact time 
schedule and final plans have not been determined. 

Students majoring in psychology number about 
80. Many of the department's graduates have enrolled 
in graduate schools in psychology and many others 
have undertaken advanced study in other fields, in- 
cluding theology, social work, education, business ad- 
ministration, nursing, urban planning, nuclear engi- 
neering, and law. Several have received the Ph.D. in 
psychology and are involved in college teaching or 
research. Many psychology alumni are employed in the 
field as counselors, caseworkers and psychologists with 
agencies and schools. And many others are engaged 
in other careers such as restaurant and business man- 
agement, public relations and advertising, military 
and police work, real estate, insurance and invest- 
ments. This information is the result of a recent survey 
of psychology alumni conducted by Dr. Lyle. 

The achievements of alumni bear out the benefits 
of the flexibility of the University's curriculum. Those 
who have remained in the field of psychology found 
that Susquehanna prepared them well for graduate 
school and professional service, and those who have 
entered other fields found their liberal arts background 
helpful. Like all students at Susquehanna, psychology 
majors receive extensive career counseling both from 
their own faculty and from the Career Counseling Of- 
fice. Students who plan to seek employment outside of 
psychology are encouraged to take courses in other 
areas such as business and computer science. -P. B.S. 

SPRING 1977 



JOF NARCAVAGE "75 of Mt. Carmel, Pa., knew the dangers of 
deep coal mining. He never planned on being a miner. Bui the geology 
major and varsity defensive guard on the Crusader football team 
look a job at the Kocher Coal Company about 30 miles from home in 
Tower City when he was unable to find other employment after 
graduation. He regarded his job in the mine as "temporary." and 
continued his search for a more desirable position. Now Joe has ex- 
perienced the mine's dangers first-hand and says he won't go back. 
Kocher Coal Company's Porter Tunnel, where Joe was 
working, was the scene of one of the worst mining accidents in 
Schuylkill County history on .March I . A torrent of water from an old 
abandoned shaft broke through a wall of the mam tunnel. \ flash 
fiood tossed about men and heavy equipment alike, tore out timbers, 
caused cave-ins. and left the tunnel choked with debris which 
hampered rescue efforts. Two bodies were found soon after the acci- 
dent- three men escaped with serious injuries; one trapped miner was 
rescued a few days later; bodies of .seven other trapped men were not 

all recovered for nearly a month. About 100 others were working in 
other areas of the mine and were not seriously endangered. Joe and 
another Mt. Carmel man were the only miners actually caught in the 
rush of water to get out uninjured 

The experience made Joe popular with the news media. The 
mine disaster received extensive coverage both locally and nationally. 
■Articles about Joe appeared in the Shamukin \eHs-lteiii and the 
lliirrishnri; Ralrioi and Evening Ncm.s and a taped interview with him 
was aired b\ the CBS television network on its hvening News. "The 
phone didn't stop ringing for several days," relates Joe. who says he 
eventually slopped giving interviews and turned down requests by 
ABC and NBC television. However, he was willing to talk to Sus- 
qut'hanna Alumnus. 

\\ helher its called Good Luck or Dnine Providence. "I was very 
fortunate to get out of there alive." says Joe. "I guess it just wasn't my 
day for dying." he told a newspaper reporter. "I don't know how I got 
oul." he says. .Mine engineers told him they couldn't figure it out 
either. The odds certainly were against it. The water's ice cold 
temperature alone was enough to bring men near exhaustion within a 
lew minutes. The heavy debris and machinery being carried along by 
the water were also a big threat. At one point Joe was pinned by some 
object and couldn't move, but after a few moments the object moved 

Joe was operating a conveyor when he heard an air horn blow. 
He's not sure how or by whom the horn was blown, but it probably 
saved his life. When he turned around he saw a solid wall of water 
rushing toward him. The torrent reached him as he took his first step, 
but he managed to leap down a 60-foot hole to another level of the 
mine. For a moment the water was a friend, as it broke his long fall. 
But then he had to swim, fighting the strong current. Water eventual- 
ly came to within eight inches of the 20-foot high tunnel, but Joe and 
co-worker Jim McHale were able to grab onto a ladder in an airshaft 
and climb 600 feet through the mountain to safety. At the top they 
could still hear the mad rush of the water below. McHale helped 
Harry Fishburn up the ladder. The other miner was injured and prac- 
tically helpless. Joe found it exasperating when one reporter asked 
hini if he was scared. "I was terrified." he says. 

.'Mthough he will never be able to forget his brush with death and 
says he will never return to the mines. Joe holds no grudge against the 
mine owners. "They treated me well." he says, Joe believes the mine 
was as safe as it could be and calls the accident "a freak of nature." 
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources concurs, 
calling it "probably the safest of all anthracite mines." Joe's father 
Edward, a DER inspector, says he never saw anything like that acci- 
dent in .'0 years on the job. 

Four weeks to the day after the mine accident Joe started work 
at another job. as a work analyst in the industrial engineering depart- 
ment of the .Amcar Division of ACE Industries, manufacturers of 
steel railroad cars in Milton. Pa. Joe says he's "overwhelmed" to 
finally land a job he wants. "I wear a coat and lie," he says, "and it 
sure beats putting on a yellow hat with a light and going into the 
mine." His wife, Ihe former Sharon Weaver '74, is a medical 
malpractice arbitrator with the Pennsylvania Department of Justice 
in Harrishurg. Although their long commuting distances are an in- 
convenience, at least there's no economic pressure for Joe to go back 
lo the mine. It's a different story for others in the region, however, 
who find It hard to match elsewhere the high pay offered in the mines. 
Less than a month after the disaster Jim McHale. father of a nine- 
month old daughter, was back at the same job in the same area of the 
mine where the accident occurred.

SU Sporte 


WHILE NOT a tremendous success in the won-lost columns, 
the Susquehanna winter sports season was a big hit with the 
news media and gave Crusader fans some memories that will 
linger a long time. The big news was made on the new 
hardwood basketball floor of the Physical Education Center 
and it came in two varieties: male and female. Mike Scheib 
"7X of Millersburg, Pa., made an assault on two national 
collegiate records for free-throw shooting and the women's 
team snapped a 30-game losing streak that extended back to 

After the first four games, through Dec. 6. Scheib was 9 
for 1 1 from the line — not bad but nothing to get excited about 
either. But nearly two months and I 3 games went by before he 
missed another, and by that time there were quite a few' people 
who were more interested in how Scheib fared at the line than 
in whether the S.U. five won or lost. Included in this span 
were games of 13 for 13 (against .MIentown) and 1 1 for 1 1 
(against L^psala). as well as three games in which he had no 
attempts. On Feb. 2 the 5-8 Crusader guard was 6 for 6 from 
the line while hitting 1 1 of 1 5 from the floor for 28 points, plus 
5 assists, to lead an 80-71 victory over Wilkes. He had made 
58 consecutive free throws. 

For the next game, at home with Delaware Valley on a 
Saturday afternoon, the stands were nearly filled with people, 
and not all of them were fans. One of the ticket-takers said 
he'd never seen so many press cards before. In attendance 
were a local representative of the CBS radio network and a 

photographer from The Harrisburg Patriot-News, among 
others. The NCAA record for consecutive free throws was 65, 
Would Scheib make it? That question was uppermost in the 
minds of nearly everyone in the gym. With the contest only 
3:09 old, Scheib was fouled and went to the line for two shots. 
The Susquehanna SID entered the two points in his play-by- 
play book ahead of time, as he had done for the last several 
games. This time he had to use his eraser. The ball hit the 
front of the rim. rolled to the right, and then off. Scheib had 
missed. He walked away from the line in exasperation. "I 
couldn't believe it," he said later. The large crowd sat in 
stunned silence for a few seconds before erupting into a stand- 
ing ovation in appreciation of the 58 straight — an amazing 
feat even if not a record. Scheib missed his second attempt 
also, and did not shoot any more fouls that day. He did, 
however, make 9 of 16 field goals to pace an 84-60 victory. 

Although a few of his teammates had noticed that 
Scheib's locker number— 58— matched his free-throw string, 
they hadn't mentioned it. He's not superstitious. But the SID 
asked Coach Don Harnum to make sure the little guy gets 
number 66 or higher next year. 

That wasn't the end of the story, however. Scheib was 1 1 
for 1 1 over the next three games and entered the finale with a 
season percentage of .951. The NCAA record is .944. He 
didn't need to make any more, but one miss could ruin it. The 
SID hoped Scheib wouldn't shoot any. "Keep him on the 
bench," he joked to Coach Harnum. One miss in four 
attempts left Scheib at 80 for 85, a .941 percentage, missing 
the record by .003. However, his figure was still the best in 
NCAA Division III this year. 

* * * 

No one could have predicted Scheib's free-throw 
shooting exploits. Neither could any reasonable person have 
predicted the success of the Susquehanna women's basketball 
team. .After three straight years of 0-8 marks, preceeded b> I- 
7 and 1-6. just one victory would have tasted sweet. .After 
losing the first two games by very narrow margins to run their

losing streak to 30. the women finally won one — and then 
another, and another. Coach Rose Ann Neffs exciting team 
ripped off five in a row! They were almost getting too good, 
from the fans' point of view, blowing out opponents by scores 
like 62-44 and 68-38. They were winning by the same lopsided 
margins they had lost by only the year before. 

Coming back down to earth, the Crusader women lost 
their last three. But there was no more pre-season talk about 
getting that one win to end the losing streak. Next year Coach 
Neff will be shooting for at least a winning record. And an un- 
defeated season is definitely a possibility. If not next year, 
then the follow ing year. After all. the starting lineup was three 
freshmen and two sophomores and there were no seniors on 
the squad. 

Good things seem to come in small packages as far as 
S.U. basketball is concerned. The women's answer to Mike 
Scheib is Valerie Metzger '80 of Milton, Pa., a5-4 whisp who 
zips up and down the court, leads the fast break, hits from the 
outside, handles the ball, passes off for numerous assists, 
plays defense — in short, does everything a coach can ask a 
guard to do. As a rookie she scored 174 points in 10 games, 
probably the highest total in S.U. history, although women's 
basketball records through the years are very sketchy. Watch 

out Delta State and Immaculata, Crusader women's basket- 
ball is on the move! Last year S.U. never scored over 43 
points, this year never less than 47! Last year the team scored 
36 points per game and gave up 61; this year's average was 
S.U. 58.3; opponents 54.8. 

IN BRIEF: Scheib averaged 18.2 points per game, now 
has career total of 1040. . . . Men's 11-11 record in large part 
owed to a great final season by Bob Hertzog "76 of Atlas, Pa. 
The 6-9 center averaged 16 points and 12 rebounds. . . . For 
the women, Karen Grilus "80 of Washington, Pa., had 120 
points and 96 rebounds; Janeen Kruse '79 of Sparta, N.J., 94 
points and 1 03 rebounds; Sherry Rohm '79 of Blain, Pa., 93 
points and 135 rebounds. . . . The Crusader wrestling team 
again couldn't fill all the weight classes. Joel Tokarz '80 of 
Ossining, N.Y., 158 lbs., had best record at 14-8 including 
tournaments. . . . Susquehannans were so busy counting 
hoopster Scheib's free throws that they failed to observe 
Coach Harnum's 100th victory as a collegiate mentor, 80-71 
over Wilkes at Susquehanna on Feb. 2. He didn't realize it 
himself until the season was over. His eight-year record 
stands al 103-91 (34-34 at S.U. and 69-57 at Delaware).

SUMMER 1977

-^1^^ GAZETTE --m^m^ 




A collection of more than 350 books 
and pamphlets on various issues of 
public polic> IS being installed this 
summer in the lower lounge of the 
Blough Learning Center. The items 
were presented to Susquehanna by the 
American Enterprise Institute for 
Public Policy, a publicly supported, 
non-partisan research and education 
organization located in Washington. 
DC. established in 1943 to assist the 
nation's legislators and educators by 
providing factual analyses of important 
national policy issues. 

Susquehanna will continue to receive 
the institute's future publications and 
materials as they become available. The 
Center for Public Policy, as the lounge 
area housing the material is called, will 
be open to the general public as well as 
the campus community. 

Among the undertakings of the 
.American Enterprise Institute has been 
the production of a television and radio 
series entitled "Public Policy Forums." 
which features noted authorities in open 
exchanges of views and opinions on 
specific issues. 

Topics have included national eco- 
nomic planning, national defense, 
advertising and the public interest, 
busing. Federal budget priorities, and 
welfare reform. Panelists have included 
U.S. Senators Hubert Humphrey and 
.Abraham Ribicoff. former Defense 


Six SU faculty members received a 
total of S450O in Summer Research 
Grants, awarded annually from the 
University by a faculty committee: 

Donald W. Beckie. associate pro- 
fessor of music. The Teaching of 
Woodwind Instruments: A Creative 
Approach for Future Teachers; 

Dr. James A. Blessing, assistant 
professor of political science. The 
Suspension of Foreign Aid by the 
United States. 1948-72;

ologist Nathan Glazer, and Solicitor 
General Robert Bork Among the 
moderators is former ABC newsman 
John Charles Daly. 

.Audio recordings of these broadcasts 
are among over 60 cassette tapes which 
are part of the collection presented to 

On August 1, 374-0101 became the 
telephone number of Susquehanna 
University. This is a carefully-selected 
number which provides increased trunk 
lines and. consequently, greater con- 
venience and dependability of service, 
both for incoming and outgoing calls. 
The area code, of course, remained the 
same. (717). In addition, a simple con- 
sole replaced the familiar plug-in 
switchboard in the foyer of Selinsgrove 

Eighteen years ago there was no cen- 
tral telephone number at Susquehanna. 
With installation of a new system that 
year, the number became DRake 4- 
2345. Then, with the change to all 
numerals, 374-2345. And, with the ad- 
vent of area codes, (717) 374-2345. 

The SU system was expanded a 
number of limes over the years to ac- 
commodate an expanded faculty, staff, 
and array of offices and programs. In 
the meantime, the old Middlecreek 
Valley Telephone Co. was sold to Con- 
tinental Telephone of Pa., the utility 
now operating in the area. 

Rose Ann Neff, Susquehanna's two- 
sport All-American. was again named 
to the first team of the U.S. Women's 
Lacrosse Association's national squad 
this spring. She has been picked for the 
national women's lacrosse team four 
times, twice as a first team selection. 

The team was chosen on the basis of 
play at the USWLA's National Tour- 
nament at Brown University May 28- 
30. Playing second home, a key offen- 
sive position. Rose Ann scored 10 goals 
as the South regional team split four 
games. The Philadelphia squad won the 

Making the national team at second 
home was a switch for Rose Ann, who 
was left attack wing on last year's 
squad. Noting that her new position 
requires more playmaking ability and 
skill with the stick w hile her former post 
put a premium on speed. Rose Ann. 25, 
says she's "getting to be the old lady of 
the team." 

Earlier last spring, at left attack wing. 
Rose Ann accounted for five goals in 
three games as the U.S. squad scored 
lopsided victories over a touring Aus- 
tralian squad— 10-1, 12-1, and 13-2. It 
was her second taste of international 
competition, at which she has yet to 
lose. In a previous issue, the Alumnus 
reported on her experiences as a 
member of a USWLA touring team 
which was undefeated in a month of in- 
ternational competition in Great Brit- 
ain in October 1975. 

Ms. Neff IS also a member of the 
national field hockey squad. She has 
been an instructor in physical education 
and health and women's basketball 
coach at Susquehanna since 1974. A 
Freeburg (Pa.) native, she graduated 
from Selinsgrove Area H.S. and Lock 
Haven State College. 

In June she was honored at Selins- 
grove High by establishment of the 
Rose Ann Neff Award for ability, 
dedication, and desire. Her portrait was 
hung in the high school lobby next to 
Selinsgrove's other All-American Neil 


Susquehanna hosted the Regional 
Special Olympics on May 14. More 
than 300 participants from nine coun- 
ties competed in track and field events 
on University Field and swimming 
events in the new pool during the day- 
long program. The Special Olympics 
program, which operates at local, 
regional, state, national, and inter- 
national levels, was organized in 1968 
by the Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation 
to provide the mentally retarded with 
opportunities to engage in a variety of 

sports and games. Emphasis is on par- 
ticipation, not on winning. 

The program relies on the efforts of 
volunteers, such as the 20 or so SU 
students who served as timers and 
starters and provided general assistance 
and encouragement to the participants. 
"Our students really took to it ... I was 
impressed, " says Dean Edward Malloy, 
who assisted along with Dr. Charles 
Igoe of the Education Department and 
Jeff Gilmore. assistant director of the 
Campus Center. 

Smith, who made it in football at Penn 

Keeping things in the SU family, the 
first Rose Ann Neff Award was pre- 
sented to field hockey, basketball, and 
track star Julie Carr. daughter of Alum- 
ni Director "Buss" Carr '52. Loyal 
alumni may wish to ask Buss why he is 
sending his daughter to Moravian 
College in the fall. 




Susquehanna's award-winning stu- 
dent volunteer program has a new coor- 
dinator in Jeff Gilmore. assistant direc- 
tor of the Campus Center. 

The program was formerly ad- 
ministered by Dr. Charles J. Igoe, 
associate professor of education, who 
also IS the University's director of con- 
tinuing education — which involves 
directing the Summer Session and the 
Evening Program, previously ad- 
ministered separately by Dr. Donald D. 
Housley and Dr. Kenneth O. Fladmark 

The student volunteer program. Pro- 
ject S.AVE (Students Active in Volun- 
teer Efforts), is still going strong since 
receiving the 1975 Benjamin Rush 
Awards from both the Northumberland 
County and Pennsylvania Medical 

In the past year, about 100 students 
were matched with the needs of 1 7 local 
social service agencies through Gii- 
more's office. Still more students par- 
ticipated in other affiliated volunteer ef- 
forts on campus through fraternities 
and sororities, special-interest houses, 
and internship and practicum programs 
of various academic departments. 


Despite the fact that colleges th( 
country over are closing because ol 
fiscal problems, the total number of in^ 
stitutions of higher education anc 
branches in the aggregate U.S. is 3075, 
up from 3055 a year earlier, according 
to the 1976-77 directory of colleges anc 
universities published by the Nationa 
Center lor Education Statistics. Of th< 
total, 1928 are four-year institutions, i 
gam of 14 from 1975-76, and 1 147 ar< 
two-year colleges, a gam of six. On th« 
basis of control, 1467 are publicall)

are privately controlled, up seven from 
the previous year.

ON OUR COVER: Alumni Association Presi- 
dent George Bantley '4 1 poses with Susquehan- 
na President Gustave Weber and the bronze 
plaque just presented to him at the Alumni 
Awards Luncheon on May 7. Both presidents 
are retiring. Bantley's term expired and elected 
to succeed him was Bill Davenport '53 of Camp 
Hill, Pa. Our sincere thanks go to George for 
three successful terms of office, terms in which 
alumni activity and support of SU have made 
real gains. 

Dr. Weber's retirement is effective August 
31. How the alumni and various other segments 
of the University honored him is amply evident 
in this magazine. His successor. Dr. Jonathan 
C. Messerii of Fordham University, will be on 
board September I. And so, the old order 
changeth, making way for the new. 

Let us now pledge our loyalty to President 
Davenport and President Messerii in the years 
to come. — G.T.

and a surprise for 
the retiring President 

COMMENCEMENT "77—11 was Saturday, May 21, and 
the end of Susquehanna's 119th academic year. The Rev. 
James R. Crumley preached at the morning Baccalaureate 
Service, conducted by Chaplain Edgar S. Brown and in- 
cluding music by a Baccalaureate Choir and a Brass Ensem- 

After a buffet luncheon in the Campus Center, the im- 
pressive academic procession moved from Bogar Hall up the 
mall to Weber Chapel Auditorium, where nearly 2000 par- 
ticipants, parents and other well-wishers filled the hall to 

Six honorary degree conferrals appeared on the printed 
program. Board Chairman John C. Horn introduced each 
candidate in turn. President Weber read the citation and 
granted the degree, and Faculty Marshal Neil H. Potter 
placed the colorful hood. And then . . . 

The microphones were taken over and the retiring Presi- 
dent heard himself being presented by Board Vice Chairman 
Erie 1 . Shobert. A completely nonplussed Weber was stripped 
of his Seal of Office and the hood he was wearing and, with 
Dean Wilhelm Reuning standing by, was made President 
Emeritus and the recipient of the L.H.D., conferred by Dr. 

The Commencement address was delivered by Dr. 
Homer D. Babbidge of The Hartford Graduate Center. It is 
published in its entirety begining on page 9. 

HOMER DANIELS BABBIDGE: Product of Yale College, where 
you earned three degrees and held a variety of academic and ad- 
ministralive posts, you went on to service with the United States 
Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and rose to the posi- 
tion of .Assistant United States Commissioner of Education. You 
then became President of the University of Connecticut and, later. 
Master of Yale's Timothy Dwight College. Last year you assumed 
the presidency of The Hartford Graduate Center, established by 
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for the express purpose to serve the 
graduate-level educational needs of working professionals. 

Historian and man of letters, you have written and published on 
The Federal Interest in Higher Education and on Noah Webster's 
writings about being American. And you have been prominent on 
public television as narrator for the "Connecticut Heritage Series." 
Recipient of many awards, you have been honored by men, by educa- 
tion, and by government. We welcome you today to Susquehanna's 
Commencement podium. 

Therefore, in exercise of the authority vested in me by the Board 
of Directors of Susquehanna University and the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania, I hereby confer upon you the degree of Doctor of 
Letters, honoris causa, with all the rights and privileges pertaining 
thereto, in token whereof 1 now hand you this diploma and direct that

Fellow of the National Sculpture Society and Academician of 
the National Academy of Design, your monumental statues, reliefs 
and bosses embellish great churches and cathedrals, both Catholic 
and Protestant, as well as colleges and other public places, in New 
York and Washington and throughout the Eastern United States. 
But more than mere decoration, your work befits the spirit of the 
theme for this very building as you chose to interpret it in the piece we 
dedicated yesterday — "Where worship and the performing arts may 
flourish together as they were wont to do of old, ad Gloriam Maiorem 
Dei." What a noble expression of God-given vocation! 

Therefore, in exercise of the authority vested in me by the Board 
of Directors of Susquehanna University and the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania. I hereby confer upon you the degree of Doctor of Fine 
Arts, honoris causa, with all the rights and privileges pertaining 
thereto, in token whereof I now hand you this diploma and direct that 
you be invested with the hood appropriate to this degree.

GUSTAVE WALTER WEBER: Clergyman, teacher, coach, in- 
dustrial chaplain, industrial executive, educator, you have brought 
distinction to this institution during your more than eighteen years of 
an Extraordinary Presidency. Upon accepting the challenge in 1958, 
you beckoned many to join in the unusual rebirth and expansion of 
the University. By example, you infused spirit into an expanded 
Board of Directors, Faculty and Staff, enabling them to serve a Stu- 
dent Body three times the size as when you began your term of office. 
You trebled, also, the size of campus and caused eleven major struc- 
tures to rise on this campus. 

These are but tangible evidences of a Man of Great Spirit, 
Strength, and Leadership, The history of Susquehanna University 
will attest to the magnificent happenings of this era. and to the 
wonderful couple of Pine Lawn. 

It gives me great pleasure to follow out the unanimous direction 
of the Board of Directors by, first, conferring upon you the office and 
title of President Emeritus upon your retirement from the presidency; 
and, second. 

With the wish of the Board of Directors that you be an Alumnus 
of Susquehanna University, Class of 1 977, and by the authority of the

The author. President of The Hartford 
Graduate Center, delivered this Commencement 
Address at Susquehanna University on May 21. 

FOR MANY YEARS, I lived within the proverbial stone's 
throw of Windham, Connecticut — a town in which (more 
than two centuries ago) was centered the headquarters of the 
Susquehanna Company. That company, you will recall, laid 
claim to lands in Western Pennsylvania, and tried — un- 
successfully, as it turned out — to bring the culture and 
government of Connecticut to these parts. 

1 assure you that I come with no such intentions today; 
and I must say that my principal reaction on seeing this lovely 
place, is to marvel at how well you have done without us. 

There is an ancient story, still popular in Windham, 
Connecticut, about an early farmer who converted some 100 
acres of characteristically rocky New England soil into a rich 
and productive dairy farm. He accomplished this feat over a 
period of 40 years, laboring from dawn 'til dark. One day. his 
minister came to call, and together they walked through the 

now clear, verdant and productive acres; and at the end of the 
tour the minister observed, "This is a great work you and God 
have done here together!" "Yeah," replied the farmer, "but I 
wish you could have seen it when God had it all to himself." 

This University, dedicated as it has been for 1 19 years to 
the education of succcessive generations, is engaged — I am 
confident — in God's work. But it is — as its Trustees, Faculty 
and Alumni know — a work in which God needs all the help he 
can get. And that's an important truth for those of you who 
leave here today with any instinct to lead worthy lives. You'll 
discover that God needs a lot of help, and that helping is hard 

We've just spent a year celebrating (largely) historic 
forms of helping — of service to the cause of values derived 
from an understanding of God's work; the conversion of 
rocky soil into farms, carving out opportunities in the 

SUMMER 1977 

wilderness, creating churches and schools, and erecting struc- 
tures of governance suited to elevated human aspirations. We 
have celebrated two centuries and more of the building of a 
society that — for all its obvious shortcomings — is the finest 
and fairest society the world knows. We have failed in a lot of 
ways; but we have in fact been guided in all this building, by a 
belief that we were moving along avenues of service to a high 
set of values, founded in the Judeo-Christian tradition. 

And we celebrated that fact, in 1976. The Bicentennial 
Celebration was worthwhile for a variety of reasons, among 
which w as the understanding it gave us of the foundations on 
which we can — if we will — build for the future. 

It prompted one of my colleagues to urge his students, as 
1 would urge the first graduates of this Nation's third century: 

"Stand on the shoulders of your forebears. Because 

of them, you can see beyond horizons they never knew." 
As we scan the horizon from the broad shoulders of the 
American inheritance, the prospect is both great and 
terrifying.We see a future that embodies tests and challenges 
and hardships at least as great as those that confronted the 
settlers of this one-lime wilderness. 

The essential values we carry into the future will not, 1 
think, change substantially; they are too deeply rooted. But 
the struggle in which we use those values as weapons — the 
work in which we use those values as tools — are of a substan- 
tially different order. 

For centuries we have toiled and built and grown and ex- 
panded. We have devoured resources and converted them into 
things new and wonderful. We have proved that we can grow 
bigger and more beautiful, run faster, jump higher and — in 
myriad ways — demonstrate the scope of human imagination 
and capability. 

But now, thanks largely to those very advances, we can 
see that our historic patterns of practice cannot continue. A 
single photograph of the earth taken from the moon — that 
photograph a marvel of human achievement in itself — has 
brought us to our senses. 

Overnight, a huge world became a basketball. The man 
on the street learned what scientists meant by a closed system. 
The heavens, as we once called them — or the big 
sky — suddenly became a paper-thin atmosphere, a life- 
support system so fragile that it is threatened by human in- 
ventions as trivial as aerosal spray. 

Then, too, a new view of our world was sobering in other 
ways. For white .Americans, accustomed to referring to 
Blacks and Orientals as "minorities," the realization that 
they were, in fact, a minority themselves put a lot of things in 
a different perspective. It prompted us to hear for the first 
time some things to which we had theretofore turned a deaf 
ear: the fact that Americans, composing perhaps 6 percent of 
the world's population, consume some 30 percent of its 
energy and 16 percent of its grain. We awoke, too, to the fact 
that the world's one majority — its women — had largely been 
denied the liberty espoused as a birthright of all. 

The net impact of these new perspectives on the 
.American people has been troubling. The realization that 
thmgs simply can't continue to go on as they have in the past, 
is understandably upsetting. But the wise alternative course is 
not yet altogether clear. 

Predictably, there have been immediate responses — not 
all of them well thought out. Let me stress a single il- 
lustration: the realization that one of our problems has been 
equating big with beautiful and more with better, has invited 
an opposing polarization. Probably most of this year's college 
graduates have encountered a provocative and appropriately 
slender book entitled Small is Beautiful. I don't happen to 
think that big is beautiful, and so I'm skeptical about the 
proposition that Small is Beautiful. I rather doubt that beauty 
is related to size. Proportion, maybe; but size, no. 

Nonetheless, it is a stimulating and provocative book, 
with a great subtitle, "Economics as though People Mat- 
tered," and its popularity alone suggests the validity of my 
contention that we stand in one of those periods in human 
history in which we — Americans especially — have to address 
the basic questions of fate and future. We have celebrated a 
glorious yesterday; we must now think of tomorrow. 

And certainly bigness and scale must be addressed; for it 
is the rate of consumption of limited resources that brings us 
face to face with some of our most alarming prospects. 

But when we set out to analyze bigness in American life, 
we find among other things that we as individuals are respon- 
sible for feeding and encouraging the very bigness we deplore. 
Every instinct we have for more, or faster, or cheaper helps to 

The Bicentennial . . . worthwhile 
for a variety of reasons 

feed the bully of bigness. With the aid of — and eventual 
dependence on — gas-guzzling machines, ever bigger, faster 
and more powerful, we pursued our individual lust for the 
cheaper, the more and the faster. 

In a very real sense, therefore, it ill-behooves us to 
criticize "the big guys" — as we call them — who make a profit 
from automobiles or oil or whatever; when all they did was to 
give us what we thought we craved. 

The phenomenon of bigness isn't — as it turns out — the 
fault of someone else; it lies on the doorstep of every 
.American who has confused more with better — and that, I 
regret to say, is most of us. As the great Pogo once said: "We 
have met the enemy, and he is us." 



Confusing more with better is one source of our 

Confusing upward w ith onward is another. A preoccupa- 
tion with moving upward has brought us, alas, to the Peter 
Principle, and to the not uncommon pathos that comes from 
"arriving," only to find the trip wasn't worth the cost. 

Those of us who have had some exposure to the life of the 
mind — we especially — should have realized that things can 
grow without getting bigger; that life can become richer 
without more riches; that one can go onward without going 
upward. And yet I'm not at all sure we in academic life have 
any better track record in this respect than John Q. Citizen. 

The sins of avarice and ambition it seems, are settled on 
all of us. in one degree or another. 

And so, when 1 speak of how we are to face an awesome 
future, armed only with values from our past, values 
themselves emerge as important. It turns out that our future 
hinges not so much on forces beyond our control, but upon 
control of ourselves. In a big and complex society, the 
isolated, oft-excused petty sins of individuals are amplified 
and compounded; but they are still the source. Just as the Lit- 
tle Fishing Creek flows into the Huntington Creek and it in 
turn, into the Susquehanna; so do little acts of individual 
avarice and ambition and bias contribute to a potential 
torrent that ultimately — if unchecked — threatens the 
mightiest of nations. 

Among the values we cherish from the past, there is none 
that encourages or condones the failings that seem to me to lie 
at the root of our problems. Indeed, it is a neglect — perhaps 
even defiance — of those values that's brought us to where we 

It's not our values that need changing. What is needed, is 
to scrape from those values the encrustation of carelessness, 
convenience and compromise that have all but obscured 
them. We need, among other things, to go back to the cabinet 
of our past, take out and re-examine those values in their un- 
tarnished form. 

That exercise was tried — almost a century ago — by a 
young women poet (a professor at Wellesley College, whose 
name is now , sadly, little known to us — Katherine Lee Bates). 
Writing at a time when we dared to commit our dreams to 
print, she composed familiar lines that spoke of 

"Spacious skies," and "amber waves of grain"; 
of "pilgrim feet. Whose stern impassioned stress 
A throughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness"; 
and of the "patriot dream" That saw beyond the years 
alabaster cities gleaming, "Undimmed by human 

But more importantly, Katherine Lee Bates — even from the 
vantage point of the late 1 9th century — saw the problems we 
now have in prospect. More important than her familiar 
glorification of the American heritage are her insights into 
w hat might be called the second generation of problems con- 

. . . go back to the cabinet of our 
past . . . reexamine tfiose values 
in their untarnished form 

fronting her beloved America. It is in her refrains, that she 
said what I would say to you today. 

She appeals to God — you'll recall — to mend our every 
fiaw, asking this Nation to "Confirm thy soul in self control. 
Thy liberty in law." Self-control — liberty in law — these cer- 
tainly are among the urgent requirements of a believable 

Then, addressing that American interest in material 
things that seems at times to have gotten out of control, she 
pleads, "May God thy gold refine. Till all success be 
nobleness, and every gain divine." 

To measure success as nobleness; to think of gain in 
something closer to divine, rather than material terms, is one 
of the toughest tasks we face. 

And then, interestingly, the only refrain Katherine Lee 
Bates saw fit to repeat, is the most familiar of all. It is her 
recognition of the ultimate obstacle to the realization of the 
American dream. For all its familiarity, I repeat it: 

"God shed His grace on Thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood," 
That young poet standing on the shoulders o( her forebears 
saw virtually all we can see today: The past on which we can 
build; the potential of our common — and 1 believe, en- 
during — dream; and the challenges we face as we begin the 
third century of Nationhood. 

1 can add no more. Except, perhaps a cautionary post 

In our family hymnal, (which I'm somewhat em- 
barrassed to say, is a Methodist hymnal) on the page facing 
Katherine Lee Bates's famous words, is yet another great 
anthem, the first verse of which warns us: 

"Once to every man and nation 

Comes the moment to decide. 

In the strife of truth with falsehood, 

For the good or evil side; 

Some great cause, God's new Messiah, 

Offering each the bloom or blight. 

And the choice goes by — forever, / 

'Twixt that darkness and that light." 

In this morning after our great Bicentennial party, I 
believe we face such a moment and are offered such a choice. 

My hope is that God will shed his grace — and that 
light — on this graduating class and its generation. And I 
believe he will, if only he gets enough help.

his bronze and walnut plaque given 
"with warm affection and appreciation 
for conspicuous leadership in fostering

of esteem from a grateful Alumni 
Association" (see cover and below). 


ALTHOUGH I ATTENDED nineteen Alumni Club 
meetings during the past year, 1 was able to address 
only a small portion of our graduates, so I would like to 
take this means to thank the rest of this large body for 
the tremendous support you have given Mrs. Weber 
and me during the eighteen and one-half years of our 
tenure as president of your Alma Mater. We can never 
express in words adequately how much your evidences 
of goodwill, your financial support, your recommenda- 
tion of students, and demonstrated loyalty to Sus- 
quehanna have meant to us over the years. 

More recently the gift to the Shearer-Weber 
Scholarship Fund at the May 7th Alumni Luncheon, as 
well as the plaque and purse, make us even more 
grateful, since we interpret these gifts as symbols of 
your devotion to the cause we mutually serve. We un- 
derstand that more than one thousand Alumni have 
contributed to the aforementioned gifts. We thank you 
most sincerely. 

Now may I plead with you for a continued dedica- 
tion to Susquehanna as a new president takes over the 
helm. I can recall the uncertain days when we arrived 
so many years ago, the problems we faced, the needs of 
the college so evident, and how you rose to the requests 
we made time and again. The new president will be just 
as uncertain and the problems he will face just as real. 
He will need your undergirding just as we did, and I 
know you will help him bring your college to ever 
greater heights of service. 

Best of all we cherish the friendships we have 
made during these two decades. They have warmed us 
and cheered us during our years here, and we shall look 
back on them as the happiest period of our lives. We 
shall look forward to seeing you from time to time as 
we watch the continued growth of the college we all 
love and serve. Thank you and good luck always.

Saying So Long to the Webers 

GUSTAVE and Winifred Weber 
came to Susquehanna on February 1, 
1959. After more than 18 years Dr. 
Weber was ready to step down, to 
retire as the 11th President of the 
University on August 31. Spring 1977 
was the time to say "So long" to the 
couple living at Pine Lawn and to ex- 
press gratitude for service, for achieve- 
ment, for friendship . . . 

The Central Susquehanna Valley 
Chamber of Commerce, in which Dr. 
Weber was active as a director and 
president, did it with a ringing tribute

Students, faculty and staff. Board of 
Directors, parents, alumni — each 
group in its own way.

THIS ISSUEof the.-J/w/?;«wj seems to be chock full of things 
about the Webers. And rightly so. Dr. Weber and his helpful, 
comely wife have given many years of devoted leadership and 
service to an institution and a community. But wait; for the 
record, there are a few more things that ought to be said as the 
Weber years come to a close at Susquehanna. 

His 18 andone-half-year tenure is the third longest in the 
University's history — G. Morris Smith served for 31 years 
and Charles T. .-Xikens, for 22 years. The Susquehanna 
catalog, in a brief historical sketch, divides the institution's 
past history into four eras: "1858-1904, the formative years; 
1905-1927, the age of expansion; 1928-1958, the period of 
consolidation; 1959-1977, renewed expansion." The last of 
these, of course, is the Weber Era. 

Granted, a lot of colleges and universities were engaged 
in expansion during these same years— some, beyond their 
capacity to sustain the expansion now that enrollment poten- 
tials are down. But Susquehanna's expansion was controlled, 
despite the dramatic statistics: Enrollment increased from 
460 to 1400, or over 200 percent; faculty enlarged propor- 
tionately with a faculty-student ratio of 1:14 and more than 
half the teaching staff holding the doctorate; 1 1 major 
buildings erected and campus acreage increased from 63 to 
185; institutional budget up from a half-million dollars to 
nearly $7 million; total assets from $3 million to $33 million. 
And it wasn't all physical expansion: New accreditation came 
from such agencies as the American Association of Universi- 
ty Women, the National Association of Schools of Music, the 
American Chemical Society, as a result of academic im- 
provement and achievement; many special programs were in- 
itiated to meet new needs. These things must be said for the 
record. The Weber influence is surely a viable one in the 
development of Susquehanna University as a widely- 
respected liberal arts college. 

Some of these facts were underscored, too, in a special 
Pennsylvania State Senate resolution adopted in Dr. Weber's 
honor. Sen. Franklin L. Kury (D-27), sponsor of the resolu- 
tion, visited campus in July for a private luncheon, where he 
presented a copy of the document and spoke about the 
President's many contributions not only to Susquehanna, but 
also to the local community and all of Central Pennsylvania. 
In response. Dr. Weber graciously remarked that while the 
credit usually goes to one person, the University's reputation 
is really the work of many, many people. As for all the 
building projects: "After carrying all those bricks around, 
I'm getting pretty tired." 

And yet, more personal are the words in the A lumnus of 
Fall 1973 when we wished Dr. Weber a Happy 15th Anniver- 
sary. We referred to Weber the man . . . 

who has meant so much to thousands of University 
students, alumni, and others ... the aggressive Weber, 
whose first pronouncement after settling himself at his 
new desk was that little Susquehanna was going to be 
first-rate in everything it did, and the practical Weber 
who recognized that it could nevertheless not attempt to 
be all things to everyone ... the entertaining Weber who 
has a story for every occasion ... the enthusiastic Weber 
who has traveled far and wide to be where Susquehan- 
nans are ... the athletic Weber who won nine letters in 
college, still plays a mean set of tennis, and filled in as 
football coach for two games some years ago . . . the 
compassionate Weber whose pastoral concern and help 
extends into the lives of students, parents, staff and 
alumni alike . . . the Weber who is always available, 
always interested, always involved. 

This really sums him up pretty well, and I think it reveals 
why he was able to accomplish so much. Perhaps he was the 
compleat small-college president. His administrative style 
was informal, and yet he managed to have a handle on almost 
everything the rest of us did. Administrators didn't always 
agree with him but, believe it or not, we won some. He was a 
great guy to work for and with. With genuine heartfelt thanks 
and love, we wish him and Bobbie many happy and fruitful 
retirement years. 

Looking toward the fall, the Admissions Office is 
already at work recruiting Susquehanna's Class of 1982. The 
staff consists of Paul W. Beardslee, director; James M. 
Skinner '64, associate; William C. Heyman and Barbara 
Lomar Lebo, assistants. Edward K. McCormick is director 
of financial aid. They are thus far booked for 35 College 
Nights throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, 
Connecticut, and Maryland. In addition, coverage includes 
telling the Susquehanna story in other visits to Philadelphia, 
New York City, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Puerto Rico, 
Baltimore, Boston, Long Island, Chambersburg, Harrisburg, 
York, Lancaster, and many other places. 

During the recruiting season, the Admissions staff is 
assisted by Dean of Students Edward J. Malloy, Registrar 
John T. Moore, Assistant Development Director Carl M. 
Moyer '63, and faculty members J. Thomas Walker and 
Donald J. Harnum. Dr. David N. Wiley, on sabbatical leave, 
will be talking with prospective students in Europe.

children and friends should write to the Admissions Office,

SUMMER 1977 


ZU Zports 


THIS YEAR the Associated Women Students reinstituted an award 
for the Most Valuable Senior \\'onian Athlete which had not been 
presented since the old Women's Athletic Association disbanded 
several years ago. The 1977 winner was so outstanding that if this 
award hadn't existed it would have been necessary to create one for 

Ginny Davis '77 of Warminster. Pa., was number-one singles 
player on the women's tennis team for four years and was named the 
squad's Most Outstanding Player three limes. She was undefeated in 
dual matches the last two seasons and had a streak of 14 in a row ex- 
tending back to her sophomore year. Her only loss since then came in 
the quarterfinals of the MAC Tournament this spring. Her career 
record was 20-7. .Ml this was accomplished by a petite woman who 
lacked the powerful strokes which usually prevail in the sport. 

While most athletes emphasize the physical, Ginny Davis relied 
more on mental and emotional toughness. Unable to overpower op- 
ponents, she overwhelmed them with remarkable control, cool, and 
consistency. It often seemed that she would return every shot. Her 
lesser opponents soon gave up; the better ones often were eventually 
reduced to nervous wrecks, beaten by their own mistakes, muttering 
to themselves and talking to their racquets. Playing her must have 
seemed a little like trying to turn back the tide. Her concentration was 
so great, her eyes so intent on the ball, that she sometimes gave the 
opposition a momentary break by hitting shots that were out because 
she didn't seethe line. Susquehanna has had its share of great athletes 
and will surely have more in the future, but Ginny Davis was one of a 

The coveted Blair Heaton Memorial Award, which recognizes 
sportsmanship and academic excellence as well as athletic achieve- 
ment, was presented to Rob Hazel '77 of Chesapeake City, Md. As a 
mainstay of two highly successful Crusader squads. Hazel collected a 
total of seven letters in soccer and baseball. A University Scholar, he 
had a 3.9 cumulative grade point average as a music education major. 
A "double threat" in music as well as sports, Hazel excels at both 
French horn and organ. The schedule ofrehearsals and performances 
is such that very few music majors can find the time or energy to par- 
ticipate in intercollegiate athletics. Rob Hazel did much more than 
jusl participate. He holds the SU record for career goals in soccer and 
IS the third baseman on the second team of the 1977 MAC All-Star 
Baseball Squad. 

The spring season was again the most successful campaign of the 
year for Susquehanna University athletes. Although they didn't 
measure up to last spring's winning record, the .443 percentage of the 
spring sports still outdistanced fall (.366) and winter (.4CX)). Once 
again leading the way was Coach Buss Carr's golf team, the most 
successful Crusader squad over the past dozen years. While falling 
short of last year's 10-2 mark, the golfers still managed a highly 
respectable 9-5 showing. The other winners were women's tennis, 
who made it two winning seasons in a row for Coach Connie 

Seniors Davis and Hazel 

Delbaugh after failing for the first eight years of their brief history, 
and baseball, also for the second straight season. 

The Crusaders' overall won-lost percentage for 1976-77 was 
.410, with a break down by sex showing .417 for the women and .409 
for the men. As pan of many University festivities honoring Dr. 
Weber upon his retirement, the PR office compiled the athletic 
record under his 18-year presidency. Since the fall of 1959. Sus- 
quehanna athletes have won 1017. lost 1253, tied 41, for a percentage 
of .448. This won't win any prizes, but neither should it be cause for 
embarrassment. At the spring sports dinner, the athletic department 
presented Dr. Weber with asilver cup as a token of thanks for his sup- 
port of the program over the years. 

Joining Hazel among the MAC Baseball All-Stars were Bill 
Hart '78 (Weatherly, Pa.), first team catcher, and Paul Mueller '78 
(Basking Ridge, N.J.), second team outfielder. Bob Svec '79 (Pomp- 
ton Plains. N.J.), catcher and designated hitter, had the Crusaders' 
best batting average at .407 and was named Best Hitter and Most Im- 
proved by Coach Jim Hazlett. Second baseman Brad Moore "77 (Old 
Saybrook, Conn.) had the Highest Offensive Rating and right- 
hander Pete Callahan '78 (Park Ridge, N.J.) was Best Pitcher with a 
7-2 mark. Moore, also a football standout, joined the elite group of 
athletes who earned four letters in two sports . , , Coaches Bob 
Muirhead and Bill Moll presented track and field awards to mid- 
distance runner Bruce Koenecke '77 (Westfield, N.J.), Most 
Valuable; distance runner Russ Stevenson '80(Wyckoff, N.J.). Most 
Points-Running; and shot and discus hurler Mark Pollick '79 
(McAdoo, Pa.). Most Points-Field. Stevenson, whose exploits this 
year included a run in the Boston Marathon, broke the SU record for 
the three-mile run the first lime he ran the race in competition . . . 
First-year Men's Tennis Coach Don Harnum named Pete Burton '78 
(Chatham, N.J.) Most Valuable and Scott Slocum '79 (Dallas. Pa.) 
Most Improved ... Jo Ann Kinkel '78 (Red Lion. Pa.) was Most Im- 
proved in women's tennis . . . Mike McFatridge '78 (Glen Rock. Pa.) 
paced the golfers with a 76.8 average and Mark Bostic '78 (New 
Freedom, Pa.) averaged 77.4. McFatridge was invited to the NCAA 
Division III Championship at the Apple Valley Golf Club in Gam- 
bier, Ohio, where he finished in the top half of the field of 120. 

The baseball team's .297 batting average and .442 slugging 
percentage are the best in Hazlett's 12-year record book. Unfor- 
tunately, the pitchers' 4.467 FRA left something to be desired . . . 
.'\ssislant Director of .Admissions Bill Heyman replaced Barry 
Keadle as assistant baseball coach . . . MikeScheib '78(Millersburg, 



Pa.) was named to the third team of the College Division Academic 
All-America Basketball Squad. The finance major had a 3.5 grade 
point average for the year. . . . Susquehanna women organized a soft- 
ball club for the first time this spring and compiled a 3-i record in- 
cluding wins over F&M. Shippensburg. and Wilkes . . . The Rugby 
Club won Its last five games to finish 7-2 and brought home the cham- 
pionship trophy from the "Ruggerfest" tournament in Wilkes-Barre. 
Back John Muolo '77 (.Atlas, Pa.), whose breakaway runs were the 
team's best offensive weapon all season, was voted Best and Fairest 
player at the tournament. 

The fall season promises to bring a New Look to Crusader foot- 
ball in more ways than one. Among 1 7 lost lettermen were 1 1 starters 
and nine four-year men. That coreof players who started as freshmen 
back in 1973 made the squad look somewhat familiar each 
succeeding fall, especially in the offensive line. The 1977 team will 
have so many new faces there may be a boom in program sales. Also, 
in order to make the best use of new personnel. Coach Hazlett is plan- 
ning to install a new offense for the first time in several years. Next 
fall the Crusaders will be running from multiple formations rather 
than the familiar power-I. When a 3-6 team faces a rebuilding year, 
there can't be much hope for a powerhouse. But next fall's Crusader 
eleven could prove to be a crowd-pleaser. With a big strong-armed 

quarterback in Tom O'Neill '80 (West Reading, Pa.) and a Hock of 
Heet receivers led by split end Keith "Fly" Anderson '80 (York, Pa.) 
coming up from the 4- 1 JV team, Susquehanna can be expected to put 
the ball in the air, maybe even on first down! 

Soccer Coach Neil Potter faces the opposite problem. He has so 
many good looking players coming back that fans will be expecting 
wonders. Last fall's "youth movement," which saw seven freshmen 
earn letters, should pay dividends in 1977. The 1976 Crusaders out- 
shot their opponents by 301-194, but could translate that into only a 
25-20 edge in goals. Despite the loss of top scorer Hazel and Bruce 
Fehn '76 (West Caldwell, N.J.), SU can hope to get more of those 
shots into the nets this year. Last year's 4-7-2 mark could easily have 
been turned around, as the record for five overtime games was 0-3-2. 

The cross country squad may have depth problems again, but 
will return with a strong one-two punch in Stevenson and Chris 
Thiede "78 (Melville, N. Y.) and loses only one of its top five runners. 

The best thing happening to the field hockey squad may prove to 
be the addition of Nora Williams '74 as assistant to Coach Delbaugh, 
who says she needs the help. Improving on last fall's disappointing 1- 
7 record should not be difficult. 

Susquehanna women will inaugurate an official intercollegiate 
volleyball team next fall. Coaching will be faculty wives Jinny Har- 
num and Pat Reiland, both of whom are qualified phys ed teachers 
who have helped out at SU from time to time.

As indicated in the President's 
Report, the Susquehanna University 
Fund for 1976-77 exceeded its goal of 
$200,000 and climbed to an all-time 
high of $220,400. There were 22 14 gifts 
from alumni — that's 29 percent par- 
ticipation, which is above the national 

University Associates, the leadership 
level of gifts, accounted for $182,605 
from 566 alumni, parents, and friends. 

There was a high degree of competi- 
tion between class agents responsible 
for soliciting gifts from their classmates 
and the chart published at the right lists 
the leaders in each of four categories.

American colleges today face "the 
dual challenge of making higher educa- 
tion accessible to a wider spectrum of 
Americans w hile stopping the erosion of 
intellectual achievement and again 
raising the level of academic perform- 
ance." according to Susquehanna 
University President Jonathan Mes- 

The new chief administrator, former 
dean of the Fordham University School 
of Education, assumed office as Sus- 
quehanna's 12th President on Sept. 1 
and was the featured speaker at 
Opening Convocation. 

The unique role of colleges and uni- 
versities in our society, he said. Is to 
search for truth, seek the public trust as 
protectors and preservers of discovered 
truth, and "accept the awesome respon- 
sibility of making it available to succes- 
sive generations." 

Dr. Messerli noted the importance of 
an open educational system to our 
democratic society and praised the civil 
rights efforts of the past two decades in 
which progress was made toward es- 
tablishing equality of educational op- 

We began to realize in the 1960s, he 
said, "how large an unfinished task 
remained. If we had now opened the 
educational contest so that all might 
enter, it became evident that, once In the 
race, the competition was grossly un- 
fair" because of "the cultural and 
economic deprivation that was often the 

result of a childhood In the ghetto." 

However, Dr Messerli expressed 
alarm at some of the strategies being 
employed today to deal with this 
problem. One has been "the lowering of 
academic standards for entry" to 
college. Another is "a new social 
dogma" that "it is the obligation of 
society and its educators to ensure that 
they achieve an equality of results" so 
that "every American can achieve a 
similar profile of educational perform- 

"It is here," the President stated, 
"that one of the historic missions of the 
university, especially the private univer- 
sity, is in jeopardy. Must it give up its 
function of setting standards of cultural 
excellence; must its search for and the 
transmitting of truth in ever more 
rigorous and intellectually demanding 
forms be compromised?" 

The last ten years have witnessed an 
alarming erosion of standards and 
leveling of achievement, he said. This 
course can be disastrous to colleges, and 
deprives society of needed leadership as 
well. "And it deprives the minorities of 
their chance at a real education." 

Higher education must avoid both 
the extremes of "misdirected egali- 
tarianism" and "exclusionary elitism." 
he urged. "As we seek to nurture 
academic excellence, we seek to agree 
that it may manifest itself in a pluralism 
of forms."

ON OUR COVER: Obliging our photographer 
at Pine Lawn are Susquehanna University's 
I2lh President, Dr. Jonathan Carl Messerii, 
the First Lady, and Radcliffe, their Siamese. 
The new chief executive was inaugurated on 
October 14 and this issue features coverage of 
the ceremonies, the Inaugural Address, and 
related events. The Inauguration signaled the 
beginning of a new era at Susquehanna and, 
with Dr. Messerli's influence already being felt 
at many levels, a new spirit is in the air — a spirit 
of optimism and excitement which speaks well 
for the future. The Alumnus joins the entire 
Susquehanna community and all its con- 
stituencies in extending a very warm welcome 
to the Messerii family. 

This is a big, special issue and we trust that 
all our readers will find plenty of reasons inside 
to be proud of their ties with Alma Mater.

Inauguration of 
Jonathan Carl Messerii 
as 12th President . . . 
a very special day for 
Susquehanna, with nearly 
100 official delegates 
from other institutions 
and agencies taking part 
with the University 
community in celebration 
of the beginning of the 
new leader's tenure. 
. . Fanfare trumpets 
welcomed the Procession 
and the retiring

Representatives to the Inauguration signed an 

oflicial registration scroll and saw a display of 

congratulatory certificates from other colleges 

and universities. At an elegant luncheon for 475, 

the tvlesserii family posed for a rare reunion photo, 

front: son Timothy J. Messerii, an accountant of 

Lanesboro, l\^ass.; Dr. fvlesserli; Mrs. t^esserli's 

parents fvlinnie and Karl H. Rabey of Chicago; Mrs.

studying in Florence. Back: Mr. and Mrs. Milton 
Zuehsow of Chicago; Mr and Mrs. Elmer Arnst of 
River Forest, III. Laura Zuehsow and Eleanor 
Arnst are sisters of Mrs. Messerii. Arnst, a 
professor of education, was the delegate from 
Concordia Teachers College of River Forest. 


Prior to robing for the ceremony, Dr. Messerii 
paused to make a statement for tlie audience of 
WBRE-TV and then helped an old friend, Barnard 
College President Jacquelyn t\Aattfeld, with her 
regalia while son Tim looked on. h^oving from the 
Campus Center to Weber Chapel Auditorium for the 
Procession were these members of the official 
party: State Senator Franklin L. Kury; Dr. Weber; 
Central Pennsylvania Synod, LCA, President Howard

FALL 1977 

Presidential Inauguration . . . 
a major academic event 

INAUGURATIONS had not been frequent at Susquehan- 
na, which had only three Presidents during the years from 
1905 to 1977. So, the Inauguration of Jonathan Messerli was 
planned as a major academic event and included several im- 
portant related activities focusing on University programs 
and concerns. 

Things got under way on Wednesday, October 1 2, with a 
Business-Industry Symposium and a dinner highlighting 
Susquehanna's new Business and Society Program. On 
Thursday there was a Liberal Arts Seminar entitled "Liberal 
Education: The Search for Meaning." Both had outstanding 
guest speakers and both were well attended. Coverage in 
more detail is planned for a future issue of the Alumnus. 

The annual dinner for University Associates, who set the 
pace in giving to the over-the-top Susquehanna University 
Fund, was held on Thursday evening and was followed by a 
Department of Music Inaugural Concert distinguished by the 
breadth and depth, and inTmite variety, of its offerings by 
students and faculty members alike. 

The Inauguration Convocation began Friday at 3 
o'clock and was preceded by a luncheon for the Board of 
Directors, faculty, staff, and delegates representing other 
colleges and universities, learned and professional societies, 
student leaders from each class, and the University's 
Women's Auxiliary and Parents Association. 

Presiding over the Inauguration was Dr. Erie I. Shobert 
II, vice chairman of the Board and chairman of the Presiden- 
tial Search Committee, replacing Board Chairman John C. 
Horn, who was recuperating from a hospital stay. Dr. Horn's 
brother, the Rev. Dr. Henry E. Horn — who is pastor of 
University Lutheran Church, Cambridge, Mass., and was 
Dr. Messerli's pastor while he was at Harvard — offered the 
inaugural Prayer and stayed on to be the speaker at a Sunday 
evening program which celebrated the Covenant between the 
University and the Central Pennsylvania Synod, Lutheran 
Church in America. The Invocation was said by S.U. 
Chaplain Edgar S. Brown Jr. (page 18) and the Benediction 
was pronounced by the Rev. Dr. James C. Finlay, S.J., presi- 
dent of Fordham University. 

Official greetings were brought from the Students by 
SGA President Joseph Witmer; from the Alumni by Presi- 
dent William C. Davenport; from the Faculty by Dr. Wilhelm 
Reuning, dean and professor of history; from the Church by 
the Rev. Dr. Howard J. McCarney, Synod president; and 
from the Commonwealth by Slate Senator Franklin L. Kury. 
Dr. Messerli's challenging Inaugural Address (page 1 1 ) was 
received enthusiastically by the audience and by the press as 

The Color Guard of Susquehanna's Marching Brass 

and Percussion led the Procession into the hall 

where the Inauguration of the University's Twelfth 

President was witnessed by some 1100 persons. On 

opposite page, at top, approaching the platform 

were Fordham's Father Finlay with Dr. Horn, followed 

by the President Designate with his presenter, Dr. 

Gynith Giffin, a member of the Search Committee. 

Visible behind Dr. Messerli is Dr. Shobert. The 

five speakers who brought greetings were SGA President 

Joe Witmer, Alumni Association President Bill 

Davenport '53, Dean Wilhelm Reuning, Central Penn 

Synod President Howard McCarney, and State Senator 

Franklin Kury. The full Symphonic Band and University 

Choir— some 140 strong— dressed the stage with the 

official party seated to either side at the front. 


*;r -t,s 

Music played a significant part in the ceremony too, as 
the Symphonic Band under James Steffy and the University 
Choir under Cyril Stretansky performed several major 
works, separately and together. Among them. Sine Nomine 
by Ralph Vaughan Williams was dedicated "to the Saints of 
the past who founded and nurtured Susquehanna University" 
and i'e Shall Have a Song from "The Peacable Kingdom" 
was dedicated "to American culture and the futuTe of liberal 

Not to be outdone, the student body sponsored an 
Inaugural Ball on Friday evening. Upwards of 500 per- 
sons — students, faculty. Board, and friends — effectively 
bridged the generation gap by dancing to the music of the past 
four decades. While not ready to lose their new President 
anytime soon, a number of students expressed the wish to 
have such a ball every year. 

Above, the new President accepted congratulations 

from Dr. Shobert and then turned to Dr. Weber as 

he began his Inaugural Address, published in its 

entirety beginning on the following page. Hundreds 

of well-wishers passed along the receiving line 

in Mellon Lounge, giving the Messerlis an opportunity 

to greet friends both new and old— as, below, 

Hilda and A. Alexander Dubin of New York City. 



The State^ the Church, and Academe 

The Inaugural Address delivered by Susquehanna's 12th President 


I WANT TO BEGIN on a personal note by thanking you. 
Dr. Weber, a President truly emeritus of this University. 
Your eighteen years here at Susquehanna have bequeathed to 
us a continuity of responsible leadership, the quality of which 
has been given to few institutions. We have gathered today on 
a beautiful campus, rightfully boasting of handsome 
buildings, both old and new, set among venerable trees, some 
which go back to our founding in 1858. Our legacy from you is 
an academic community little scarred by the divisiveness of 
student, faculty, and community confrontations. Your legacy 
includes a concerned faculty, competent staff, loyal alumni, 
and a responsible Board of Directors who have diligently and 
wisely supported the teaching mission of this school. We 
stand upon your shoulders and see a little farther into the 
future because of the vantage point provided by your stature. 

It is to that future I now wish to address my remaining 
remarks. Although the message from elsewhere in higher 
education is not uniformly sanguine, there are positive signs 
on the Susquehanna University campus which augur well for 
our future. Figuratively speaking, we have paid our rent, 
satisfied our clients, and stabilized our resources. The tasks 
we now face are those which move us beyond survival, on to 
the quest to become a distinctive institution with a clear sense 
of academic mission and a dedication to the pursuit of ex- 
cellence in every thing we do to fulfill that mission. 

Along with many other schools in this nation, Sus- 
quehanna energetically and even ingeniously responded to the 
problem of quantity. It is now time that we join closer ranks 
with those more select schools which are unmistakably com- 
mitted to quality in their teaching and learning. 

At first glance, to choose this lesser traveled path might 
seem to be a risky course of action. To look farther along is to 
see that the pursuit of excellence may be the only real way we 
may go. 

It would be better that our alumni, our parents, the 
Church, and our other constituencies close down this school 
rather than let it compromise with the relentless forces ever 
trying to drive education in this society down to a level of 
mediocrity. We must seek the best. We do not want less than 
this; and within the power given us, we will abide nothing less. 
To do so will mean a tough and demanding pilgrimage. We 
will have to negotiate past our academic sloughs of 
despondency and castles of giant despair. Or, if you prefer, at 
times we will be trudging along past the teeming alleys of 

Vanity Fair from whence come jugglers, hawkers, hustlers, 
and other rogues, as well as friends, servants, and savants. All 
will ask of us, "What will ye buy?" And our only reply can be 
"the pursuit of excellence." 

We stand willingly before this awesome task. It is 
awesome because the responsibility for excellence resides 
largely with us in the immediate academic community. Of 
course, as a private institution, we have important relations 
with the State and the Church. 

As far as the State is concerned, its relationship with 
private colleges and universities must never be more than a 
limited partnership. To be sure, Susquehanna receives signifi- 
cant aid from the Commonwealth and the Federal govern- 
ment. Although not heavily funded by research and develop- 
ment grants, our dependence and that of our students is sub- 
stantial. Scholarship aid, academic loans, low interest con- 
struction mortgages, and direct institutional grants in aid all 
have come to be an important, indeed an indispensable, part 
of our effort. 

Such assistance by our government is not unique to 
education. There are established legislative counterparts 
which support hospitals, arts and humanities, medical 
research, small farms, small businesses, and private transpor- 
tation which serves the public interest. In our case, tax monies 
enable us to construct dormitories at low interest rates, thus 
keeping down the cost of student housing. More than 60 per- 
cent of our students receive scholarship and loan support, and 
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through its direct in- 
stitutional grant provides a portion of quality not available to 
us from other means. 

We are equally aware, sometimes painfully so, of other 
ties to the government. These ties often take the form of 
guidelines, procedural regulations, report filing, quotas, 
goals, and the mandatory collection of data. Although osten- 
sibly developed to facilitate public support of higher educa- 
tion, the result has been an imposition of educational 
judgments upon us and a meddling in our affairs which 
threatens our institutional autonomy. 

To be sure, there was need for us to reform some of our 
ways. Affirmative action was long overdue, and we needed 
this external stimulation to set our houses in order. 

Redress is now well underway. If the change at times 
seems not to be with all deliberate speed, we are making 
progress, and I doubt if any similar reform in American socie- 

FALL 1977 


ty has been carried out with as much discussion and public 
scrutiny. What now should be scrutinized is the amount of 
government intervention in the academic life of this nation. 
For us in higher education, there can be no more important 
way in which we follow the Jeffersonian ideal of eternal 

Repeatedly the judiciary has chosen to be a quasi- 
legislature, not stopping until it has demanded prescriptive 
actions and programmatic concerns only remotely connected 
with its authority. Even more threatening has been the almost 
malignant growth of that fourth arm of government, the 

we may . . . become piles of pillars and 
bricks held together with a little bit of ivy 
and a great deal of red tape 

bureaucracies of the various departments of the cabinet who 
seem both unresponsive and unresponsible to the electorate. 
As these touch on higher education, one often is at a loss to 
determine any congruence between the intent of Congress and 
the consequence of its enactments. A similar bureaucratic 
drama is being played out on a lesser scale in each of the 
states. If this intervention is allowed to grow, we may lose our 
educational mission as colleges and universities and become 
piles of pillars and bricks held together with a little bit of ivy 
and a great deal of red tape. 

The institutional autonomy enjoyed by American higher 
education has been created over time and with good reason. 
What took three centuries to build cannot now be allowed to 
be dismantled by old line civil servants and recent 
Washington appointees fresh out of graduate school. 

Despite the repeated efforts to have our colleges and uni- 
versities conform to a model in some other image, the result 
has always failed. Schools are not factories, although 
teaching Freshman English may suggest the concept of 
processing raw material; they are not social agencies, 
although we are occasionally expected to do what the family, 
the courts, and the community have not done; they are not the 
Church, although there are those who think we church- 
related colleges should indoctrinate the next generation; nor 
are they research laboratories, museums, the Salvation Ar- 
my, or an inefficient arm of the media. Similar in a small way 
to each, schools more importantly have their own function. In 
essence, higher education generates culture, transmitting it to 
each generation and thereby both preserving it and modifying 

To have been on campuses during the last decade has 
been to experience the pressure to conform to everyone else's 
model. From the law and the judicial system, we have been 
called upon to adopt special versions of due process. From the 
mushrooming offices of the executive branch, the bureaucrats 
are holding us up to standards of accountability and manage- 

ment by objectives which are far more appropriate for, if rare- 
ly applied to, their own undertakings. .According to public 
management experts from one wing of an educational depart- 
ment, we are to invoke that all-efficacious trinity of 
procedures: planning, programming, and budgeting. From a 
separate wing of the same establishment, we receive the 
steady tattoo of dicta requiring ever greater application of an 
allegedly scientific measurement and evaluation. 

What really is at work here is the heresy that education is 
to be judged by the numbers it processes, the specific social 
objectives it achieves and the cost per unit. Even worse is the 
more pernicious, albeit subtle, doctrine being advanced that 
we should teach only that which can be measured and, once 
that is predetermined, we should manage and manipulate the 
process toward predetermined ends with the tyranny of an 
ever greater precision of predictability. 

Hungry, we have leaped all too quickly at the carrot of 
government grants. Slightly guilt-ridden, we have bared our 
posterior to the stick of regulation. To change the metaphor, 
we seem bent on selling our educational birthright, our in- 
stitutional autonomy, for a mess of pottage, and the price is 
submission to government intervention which undermines 
our discretionary authority and our opportunity for diversity. 

In the area of higher education it is time for our govern- 
ment to abandon its frills and get down to basics. And for our 
lawmakers there is little more basic to their mandate than the 
achievement of the fullest equality of educational opportunity 
for our citizens. When Max Lerner was once asked by a 
Polish delegation what single word he would use to sum up the 
most important meaning of his 1000-page book, America As 
A Civilization, he thought of a number of possibilities. It 
might have been freedom, or pragmatism, or justice, suffrage, 
or free enterprise. Instead, after giving the question more 
thought, he decided on the word "access" — the openness of 
our society which enables its citizens to participate fully to the 
extent of one's motivation, need, and talent. Access to the 
back or front of the bus, to the voting booth, to the courts, to 
elected office, to a job, and most fundamental, access to 

The role of the State is to facilitate this access, and for 
those in private higher education it is to make higher educa- 
tion accessible to all according to talent, need, and motiva- 
tion, rather than the accident of geographic location and 
socio-economic status. This ideal is yet unfulfilled. There is 
sufficient for the government yet to accomplish by more 
direct aid to students and institutions before it need turn to 
other programmatic expeditions of lesser and even dubious 

We also hold a second limited partnership with the 
Lutheran Church in America. In saying this, I do not wish to 
explore just what is church-related about Susquehanna. To 
do so might take us into a debate over academic transubstan- 
tiation, with us as latter day Zwinglis, Luthers, and Leos con- 
testing whether the religious element is really in, with, or un- 
der the curriculum. Such a discourse would provide a non- 
answer to a non-question. 

It is more important for us here today to disengage

ourselves from a pet myth yet propagated even within select 
academic circles. I refer not to the beUef in the existence of a 
supreme being, or the denial of it, but the belief in the ex- 
istence of a value-free curriculum. Even not to profess or 
teach values is a form of teaching and professing values. Few 
would argue for a return to the once common sectarian 
academic practice of using the colleges to proselytize and in- 
doctrinate. The college cannot be a denominational bulwark 
protecting the faithful from a threatening world. This is not to 
deny the presence of evil and its demonic power against peo- 
ple. The denial of the presence of greed, hate, and even death 
itself is a most dangerous delusion. 

Both the siege mentality, which would indoctrinate, and 
the sentimental denial of evil, which flies in the face of reality, 
cheat our youth of their birthright as mortal human beings to 
fashion religious convictions for themselves. From this, 
however, does not flow the easy prescription that the college 
should be party to a willy-nilly experimentation; neither is it 
to advocate an adolescent agnosticism by default. Mindless 
experimentation is most likely to produce the condition of ex- 
haustion; a mindless agnosticism can create a schizoid condi- 
tion of apathy and anxiety. Such tolerance is hardly the 
highest of human virtues. 

There is a universal need to belong and to believe. Young 
women and men must work out for themselves an under- 
standing of ethos and telos. It does make a difference whether 
we are risen apes, or fallen angels, or some third alternative. 
And the inability of our colleges to assist in this process of 
helping students understand their place in the universe and 
seek the transcendent may be our greatest shortcoming. At 
the least, we should attempt the task with less hubris and 
more genuine humility. 

The approach must be one of openness and reverence, 
with the knowledge that its achievement may come in various 
ways and manifest itself in various forms. For some the way 
may begin as an essentially rational analysis of values helped 
by reading in depth with the guidance of an understanding 
teacher. It may come through listening or through dialogue. 
For some the touchstone of faith may come through the joy of 
group worship or through the serene understanding which 
comes from solitary meditation. For some the open door may 
be the irresistible exaltation of music, and for yet others it 
may be the small voice of a friend who cares. In each and all of 
these can be found a better understanding of eros, the affir- 
mation of love and life, and thanatos, its denial and destruc- 
tion. And beyond both eros and thanatos can be found the 
transcendence from which comes the most profound meaning 
and purpose. It is our historic responsibility to make this an 
over-arching goal of this institution. 

We believe we have the responsibility as teachers to help 
young persons wrestle with the psychoanalytic determism of 
Freud and the economic determinism of Marx. We believe we 
have a responsibility to help explain what some others might 
prefer to explain away. In short, the choices in values and 
beliefs must be confronted. This is not a no-fault universe, as 
we have learned to our regret in the handling of our environ- 

Not to help others recognize this is to proselyte a trusting 
novitiate into an unexamined value system not worth living. 1 
believe that in the act of teaching and counseling and caring, 
the teacher does profess values. Beyond this our very lives are 
role models for honesty, sympathy, community service, 
freedom. A faculty member who walks in a civil rights march, 
a faculty family which adopts a bi-racial child and gives it 
love, can teach the most telling of lessons. 

We have become urban in much of this nation without 
attending to the problems of the inner city. We continue to 
seek a cultural pluralism, realizing yet how much must be 
done in terms of race and color. We seek universal learning, 
yet know how many are caught in a deprivation which denies 
them their full humanity. There are yet a thousand ways for 
love, consideration, and service. 

So, too, do we witness more formally through the office 
of the chaplaincy. Helping in the steps to belief and un- 
derstanding, the office can also serve as an independent 
prophetic witness. To use a nautical illustration, it can trim so 
as to keep the entire university on its course. In trimming, the 
daring sailor throws his or her weight on the light side of a 
small craft, keeping it on course against the vagaries of an 
irrational wind which would drive it elsewhere. Trimming can 

it is clearly superior to raising the ex- 
tended forefinger, slightly moistened, to 
see which way the wind is blowing 

be the voice against the passing fads so effectively merchan- 
dised. At a time when it was popular on campus to peddle the 
pseudo-doctrine that God was dead, it would have been more 
honest and heroic to maintain that God was very much alive 
and angry, and for good reason. It may seem a bit archaic to 
suggest that as educators we have the role of holding the torch 
high in the right hand, but it is clearly superior to raising the 
extended forefinger, slightly moistened, to see which way the 
wind is blowing. 

And we ask the Church to support us in this. With good 
conscience we can say, give us your sons and daughters. Give 
us your knowledge, your talent, and give us your money. And 
we ask this because we will continue to try where some seem 
to have lost hope. To be sure, we also stand ready to assist in 
more specific ways through ministerial seminars and con- 
tinuing education for local congregations. In addition, we are 

FALL 1977 


involved in joint projects in Appalachia and in the inner city, 
not so much for their specific budgets but for the opportunity 
they provide our students for further maturation and the 
testing of their religious convictions. 

To the leaders of the Church, we say support us. Speak of 
your belief in learning. We know that we need the rank and 
file support of the laity, but the issue is too critical to be left to 
a plebiscite. We ask you for a stewardship of leadership. It is 
said in our college literature that Susquehanna is a church- 
related college. What we must seek as well is a college-related 
Church. This is the profound meaning of the Covenant which 
we share and celebrate. 

To classify the State and the Church as limited partners 
in our undertaking is also to say that the chief responsibility 
for higher education resides with the faculty and the ad- 
ministration of this institution. For us, the buck, to use Harry 
Truman's expression, stops at our desk and in our 
classrooms. There are times when it starts in these places as 
well. Ours is the task of collectively defining the mission of 
this University and setting out its specific goals. All colleges 
have roles, but too few have a discernible mission which gains 
the allegiance of their members. At the moment, that new 
mission has not been spelled out for Susquehanna. At the mo- 
ment, it is not in the possession of any individual or group. Its 
definition will be our most imperative task in the coming 

I f the exact form and substance is yet to be determined, I 
believe that we can even at this early date identify several im- 
portant guidelines for direction. The most overreaching of 
these comes from a paraphrase of Gertrude Stein: A student 
is a client, is a client, is a client. We know something of how 
institutional purpose can be prostituted to serve mainly those 
who staff it. From thisorganizational malady Susquehanna is 
not immune. We must never forget that the student is both the 
reason for our being here and the major source of our support. 
Our general plans for the future and our conduct of our daily 
affairs should be guided by this obvious but occasionally 
overlooked truth. 

To say this is also to say that we must turn our attention 
to the hard work of curriculum building. All too easily, in the 
face of tough-minded intellectual demands, we take cover un- 
der security blankets of factual trivia and self-serving 
procedures. One fact is not as good as another. Every effort to 
greater specialization must be accompanied by an equal ef- 
fort to relate facts within our own disciplines and to other dis- 
ciplines. Eventually it may be necessary for us to storm some 
departmental parapets and overrun an occasional citadel of 
administration to be sure that the student remains the client. 

Curriculum building will mean a re-thinking of liberal 
education. What does it include? The very concept is so rich, 
so encompassing, so fecund as to defy an all-inclusive defini- 
tion here. But any definition we will develop will likely include 
the idea of liberation — a freeing from the restraints of 
superstition, bias, narrow perspective, and simplistic 
reasoning. It will include the need to help students learn how 
to think, how to communicate, and how to have something to 
communicate. Although with differing emphases, it includes 
the cognitive and the intuitive, the physical, the moral, and 
the aesthetic. It will be different for each student regardless of 

program requirements. Finally, it will be aimed to create a 
desire to keep on learning and a desire to create a life worth 
living, a life related to vocation and social purpose. 

There are large issues to be dealt with here. One is the un- 
resolved relationship between the liberal arts and the world of 
work. Another is the problem of seeking both continuity and 
change. There will be no pathological destruction of the past 
in order to rationalize what new directions we take. We will 
respect what students bring to this campus both from family 
and community; we will help them build upon it. These are 
lough issues and we ignore them at our peril. 

And we must liberate the curriculum from the printed 
page through the means of outstanding teaching. All of us can 
become better teachers and we can help each other in this 
endeavor. A first-rate college teacher must be a first-rate 
learner. Teaching and learning cannot be separated. The 
good teacher on this campus will invariably be engaged with 
his or her intellectual discipline and attentive to its nexus with 
other bodies of knowledge. This requires competence and 
dedication and we will use what resources we have to support 
this. Whether we are considering appointments, promotion, 
or tenure, we will first look for evidence of teaching perform- 
ance which ever stretches the capacities of our students to new 
levels of achievement. There is no other endeavor on this cam- 
pus where we will so tirelessly and stubbornly pursue the 
standard of excellence. And when this idea takes command, 
there will be less need to concern ourselves with the 
procedural and the incidental. 

There will be changes in the curriculum and changes in 
the conduct of our classes. The leaven of excellence will not be 
held within a department or a program. It will involve the 
faculty, of course, but it will also involve the student body, the 
administration, and the Board of Directors. Careers will be 
altered. Although the climate is ready for change, we do not 
yet know the magnitude of change necessary. In connection 
with this, I want to be on record as saying that I am not 
primarily interested in weeding out incompetence, but in 
working to help individuals succeed. It is time that we worry 
less about failure or survival. Even survival rarely fosters 
first-rate achievements. It is time that we give success, even 
triumph, a chance. 

Such are our guidelines as we join to meet the challenges 
of the future. We will ask for the State to fulfill its commit- 
ment to the fullest equality of educational opportunity while 
we will defend the academic freedom and institutional 
autonomy that is equally part of our American heritage. We 
u ill ask the Church for support and understanding; we ask it 
also for patience and cooperation as we seek to help our 
students create for themselves a life that has meaning and 
social purpose. And we will do our part in the pursuit of ex- 

Standing at this historic crossroad, we will neither be 
pessimists nor optimists; we will be "possibilists," making the 
necessity to excel the drivmg force for our creativity and our 
dedication. We stand in awe before this responsibility, but 
with Oliver Wendell Holmes we say to ourselves and to our 
students that it is required of each of us that we should take 
part in the actions and passions of our time, at the peril of 
bemg judged not to have lived.

University Chaplain Edgar S. Brown Jr., a former 
director of the Lutheran Church in America Commission

Dr. Brown's creative prayers are admired by students 
and others as well. These are the prayers he 
invoked during the University's Inauguration Week.

Report of the President 

Dr. Weber looks back 
. . . and ahead 


Pausing and having time to looi« back and reflect on what has 
happened and why is a luxury too often afforded one only 
after retirement. I can now attest that this is the case! 

Reflections of Susquehanna, its growth and develop- 
ment, and on my eighteen plus years as president bring great 
satisfaction. Such satisfaction comes not from whatever role 
I may have played but from the tireless effort of the many 
faculty and staff who have given of themselves to help build an 
educational institution of significance. This dedication and 
loyalty coupled with the growing interest and support of 
thousands of alumni and friends provides a solid base on 
which to build a truly distinctive liberal arts college. 

Reflections of what this University has become will sus- 
tain me during my years of retirement just as they should 
provide a source of pride to all alumni and friends. More im- 
portantly, thoughts of what Susquehanna can yet become 
should provide us all with added incentive during the next two 

It was always with some trepidation each September 
that I would face those young men and women in the audience 
during freshman orientation, realizing that they and their 
parents were placing their trust in the University and in its 
educational program. They were placing their futures in our 
hands. The responsibility will become even more awesome 
during the years ahead. I am relieved that this trust appeared 
to be well-placed, as over 70 percent of our young alumni have 

enthusiastically endorsed their educational experience at 
S.U. and indicate they would make the same choice of a 
college again. 

There are problems ahead for higher education. Infla- 
tion will probably increase more quickly in higher education 
than in society in general, given its labor-intensive nature; 
college enrollments will probably ease somewhat during the 
1980s as a result of a declining birth rate, and the trends 
toward vocationalism will continue to come at the expense of 
liberal arts enrollments. 

These factors may seem as though I fear for Susquehan- 
na and for other liberal arts institutions. To the contrary, 
from these pressures will come the very strength with which 
this University can build its future. The needs of the in- 
dividual to successfully face a more modern and complex 
society and his need for fulfillment during an era when 
satisfaction will become more elusive will, in most cases, be 
met best only if the liberal arts colleges — the Susquehan- 
nas — forcefully articulate their role. This University's ideal 
blend of liberal arts, music and business provides unlimited 
opportunities to develop solid educational programs that 
build on the strengths of all three components and offer a dis- 
tinctiveness for the citizen of the future. 

Susquehanna, I believe, is well on its way to meeting 
many of these challenges. Under Dr. Messerli's leadership, 
there is no question that we can reach even greater 
prominence in higher education. It is my sincere hope that 
you will help him as you have assisted me.

FALL 1977 



• The University's Admissions Office processed over 1430 
applications for admission for the fall of 1977. This figure 
represents a ten percent increase over the previous year. A 
total of 411 freshmen arrived on campus on August 31, 
together with 5 1 transfer students. Susquehanna's enrollment 
for 1977-78 is about 1365. up almost 30 students over 1976- 

• The Admissions staff visited 350 secondary schools during 
the year. Led by Admissions Director Paul Beardsiee, the 
four-person staff travels extensively during the fall and early 
winter to cover the Mid-Atlantic region. Over 10,000 in- 
quiries are processed annually. 

• Enrollment trends continue to place increasing pressure on 
the Business Department and this program now accounts for 
almost 38 percent of the student body. National emphasis on 
vocationalism together with the growing reputation of the 
Business Department have brought about this situation. 

• Based on a sampling of the new freshmen, about 70 percent 
ranked in the upper two-fifths of their high school classes and 
almost 15 percent came from independent schools, an in- 
crease over previous years. 

• S.A.T. scores, as is true nationally, continued to show 
some modest decline among the members of the incoming 
class with the verbal average slipping to 471 and the math 
average to 526. These scores represent drops of 4 and 3 points 
from last year. 

• Trends in recruitment continue to show increased involve- 
ment by faculty, staff and alumni in helping to recruit 

• About 60 percent of the Susquehanna student body receive 
some form of financial aid. A resume of the class of 1977 
which graduated in June shows that 64 percent received finan- 

cial aid and that the University spent an average of $3128 on 
each aid recipient over a period of four years. This figure 
represents only financial aid under the direct control of the 
University. Susquehanna continues to expand its pool of 
available financial aid to remain within reach of the middle 
income student. 

• In admissions. Susquehanna has continued to move into a 
more competitive position among a select group of Penn- 
sylvania institutions. While Susquehanna remains a "back- 
up" college for some students applying to the more 
prestigious Pennsylvania colleges, S.U.'s reputation is 
gradually making the University the first or second choice of 
more of these same students. Other institutions in the sample 
include Allegheny, Bucknell, Carnegie-Mellon, Dickinson, 
Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Lafayette, Muhlenberg, 
and Washington & Jefferson. Considerable credit must go to 
the hard work and dedication of the Susquehanna Ad- 
missions staff. 


• The dedication of the new Physical Education Center on 
Homecoming Weekend 1976 was attended by over 1500 
alumni and friends. The occasion marked the culmination of 
years of hopes and dreams by University officials, students 
and alumni. This new facility together with a renovated 
Alumni Gymnasium provides the University with a top-notch 
physical education and sports complex to go with a modern 
and efficient physical plant. Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper of 
Dallas, Texas, former aerospace physician, best-selling 
author of physical fitness books, and director of the Institute 
for Aerobics Research, gave the dedicatory address. The S2.3 
million facility with swimming pool and new main gym 
seating 2000 has been widely admired by all visitors to the 

• The highly-acclaimed Atlanta Ballet was in residence for 
three days in October to give demonstrations and workshops 
to S.U. classes and to visit local public schools. The ballet 
company, the oldest in the United States, then opened the 
1976-77 Artist Series with a performance in the Weber 
Chapel Auditorium on October 6. The series also included 
harpsichordist .'\gi Jambor, folk-rock guitarist Leo Kottke, 
the award-winning puppets of David Syrotiak's National 
Marionette Theatre, actor Jose Ferrer, and the Roger 
Wagner Chorale. .Additional attractions during the year in- 
cluded on-campus appearances by George Plimpton, former 
CIA director William Colby, naturalist Jean-Michel 
Cousteau, and the rock group Kansas. 

• Susquehanna continues to offer its students opportunities 
to excel both in and outside the classroom. Music majors 
teach over 200 local youngsters in the Preparator\ Program 
in Music scheduled each Saturday morning on the campus; 
100 students are involved in student volunteer projects in the 
community and at the Selinsgrove Center: over 100 students 
serve a term or more in various off-campus internships in 
areas related to their academic studies; and many others in- 



volve themselves in the more traditional activities on campus. 
Some are singled out for individual recognition. Gerry 
Huesken of Palmyra, N.J., a member of the class of 1977, is 
one whose exploits have gained wide attention. He was 
selected as one of the top five student-athletes in the country 
by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, was named 
twice to the College Division Academic All-America Foot- 
ball Team, and carried a perfect 4.0, straight-A average ma- 
joring in English. .Another S.U. student athlete, junior 
basketballer Mike Scheib of Millersburg, Pa., has ac- 
cumulated a 3.4 academic average and qualified for the 
College Division Academic All-America Basketball Squad. 
• Another focal point of University life, the Weber Chapel 
Auditorium, was the center of attention on Friday, May 20, 
as the Board of Directors and guests participated in the un- 
veiling of a large relief sculpture by Theodore Barbarossa. 
The project is being funded by the Parents Association and is 
an expression of appreciation for the 18 and one-half years of 
leadership of Dr. Gustave W. Weber. The theme of the eight- 
foot by ten-foot, gold-leafed sculpture is a quotation from the 
1966 chapel auditorium dedicatory address of actor Efrem 
Zimbalist Jr., who called the unique, revolving-stage facility a 
place "where worship and the performing arts may flourish 
together as they were wont to do of old." 


• Except for the separately funded Program in Business and 
Society, the University embarked on no new academic 
programs during the 1976-77 year. With the initial funding 
from the J. Howard Pew Freedom Trust, the University has 
developed a program to inquire into the relationship of 
business to American social objectives. The program's 
courses will examine the objectives of a good society and how 
the means used by our society to generate wealth further or 
impede the realization of these objectives. The assumptions of 
both advocates and opponents of the existing economic 
system and the legitimacy of major corporations and 
capitalism within the American social system will be dis- 
cussed. The program is primarily for arts and science students 
who must expect to deal daily with major business institutions 
and live in a world much infiuenced by them. At the same time 
the program offers business majors insight into the world 
which business must serve and what the public expects of 
business institutions. 

• After a year of discussion, the Music Department faculty 
proposed, and the Curriculum Committee approved, a B.A. 
program with a major in music. The new program, which re- 
quires a minimum of ten courses to establish a major, is 
available for students beginning in the 1977-78 year. The B.A. 
in music will appeal to those students who want to concen- 
trate in music within the liberal arts framework. The 
traditional Bachelor of Music degree, with as many as 
twenty-one courses in music, is a more highly specialized 
curriculum geared to specific careers in music, music educa- 
tion, and church music. 

• Institutional Development has become a vital concern of 
faculty and administration. This emphasis on staff develop- 
ment has the aim of improving the instructional process and 
emphasizing effective teaching and learning. Endowment 
funds of over $200,000 have been generated to help initiate a 
program which, among other things, provides seminars and 
workshops for faculty on effective teaching, provides funds 
for the introduction of new courses, and permits faculty and 
staff to attend off-campus workshops and seminars. At best, 
the program will further both the University's educational 
goals and instructional objectives, and the personal goals of 
individual faculty members and administration. 

• During 1976-77 the faculty considered a revised CORE 
program which separates the verbal and quantitative com- 
ponents of the present CORE, requires a science course of 
everyone, and strengthens the cultural and historical content. 
This action by the Curriculum Committee represents support 
for the multidisciplinary, pluridisciplinary, and cross- 
disciplinary approaches to education. 

• A major goal of any curriculum revision is to improve the 
literacy of Susquehanna's students. Confronted with this 
problem of national magnitude, the University envisions a 
goal to include a dimension which can be truly called cultural, 
scientific and societal literacy. While there is still some way to 
go until this broad concept is achieved in the fullest sense, the 
new and common CORE competences will move Susquehan- 
na in this direction. The immediate problem is verbal literacy, 
and funding has been secured to undertake a pilot project to 
help students improve their writing skills. The University's 
goal must be to make certain that all students meet minimum 
skills in reading and writing. 

• Susquehanna was selected to participate in the Visiting 
Fellows Program of the Woodrow Wilson National 
Fellowship Foundation during the next three years. The 
University is one of 55 colleges in the country currently in- 
volved in the program. The goal of the program is "to 
promote greater contact, understanding, and sharing of ideas 
and experiences between the academic community and the 
outer world." Journalist Roland H. Shackford was Sus- 
quehanna's first Woodrow Wilson Fellow in April and spent 

FALL 1977 


one week in residence discussing "Vietnam and Watergate: 
The Role and Responsibility of the Press in a Free Society." 
Mr. Shackford has spent 38 years as an overseas correspon- 
dent and foreign affairs analyst with United Press and 
Scripps-Howard Newspapers. 

• The seventh biennial Susquehanna at Oxford summer 
study program took place from June 24 to August 30. Nine- 
teen Susquehanna students were included in the group of 40 
that arrived in London on June 25 for a week of academic- 
related tours and concerts before settling in for a five-week 
residency in the historic Durham Quadrangle at University 
College, the oldest of Oxford University's colleges. 

• Dr. Charles A. Rahter, professor of English and a member 
of the faculty since I960, was awarded the 1977 Lindback 
Award for Distinguished Teaching. The presentation was 
made at Commencement by Dr. Weber. 

• The growth and development of Susquehanna University is 
directly attributable to an outstanding faculty and staff, all 
dedicated to improving the educational program. Susquehan- 
na prides itself in the fact that over 60 percent of its faculty 
hold earned doctorates or the highest professional degree in 
their field and that most enthusiastically involve themselves 
in the total life of the University. 

In recognition of their service to Susquehanna, the Univer- 
sity granted tenure to three members of the faculty, effective 
September I: Raymond G. Laverdiere, assistant professor of 
accounting; Victor P. Rislow, assistant professor of music; 
Stanley B. Williams, assistant professor of economics. Mr. 
Laverdiere and Mr. Rislow also received promotions in rank. 

Also effective September I, five additional members of the 
faculty received promotions: Dr. James L. Boeringer and Dr. 
Marjorie W. McCune to professor of music and English 
respectively. Dr. James A. Blessing to associate professor of 
political science. Dr. Hans E. Feldmann to associate 
professor of English, Dr. David N. Wiley to associate 
professor of religion. 

The University also announces the retirement of Frances 
B. MacCuish as director of career counseling and placement, 
a position she held since 1966. With Mrs. MacCuish's depar- 
ture comes the end of the "MacCuish Era" at Susquehanna 
which spanned some 26 years and included 15 years of service 
as director of admissions by her husband, Dan MacCuish,

• The University's budget for 1976-77 was $6.4 million with 
expenses exceeding income by $200,000. This deficit, the 
greatest in the past decade, was largely expected and caused 
by the graduation of large senior classes during the past two 
years. The unusual winter increased heating costs by 25 per- 
cent over budget and helped magnify the deficit. The 1977-78 
budget of $7 million is expected to be in balance. 

• Costs were increased by 10 percent for the 1977-78 
academic year. Tuition and fees are $3156, room and board 
$1346, for a total of $4502. 

• Gifts and grants for the 1976-77 year totaled $779,451. 
Included in this total is $220,400 for the Susquehanna 

University Fund, the annual giving program. Susquehanna 
received over 3200 gifts for various projects during the year, 
of which 2214 were from alumni. About 29 percent of the 
University's alumni made donations, representing a figure 
well above the national average. 

• 566 gifts of $100 or more were made to the Fund thereby 
qualifying these donors as members of University Associates, 
a group of alumni and friends who provide leadership in an- 
nual giving. This evidence of support helped the Susquehanna 
University Fund exceed its goal of $200,000 for the year. The 
goal for 1977-78 has been set at $250,000. 

• The University conducted telethons among alumni in five 
major areas: Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; New York; 
Harrisburg; the Susquehanna Valley. One hundred twenty- 
five volunteer callers, alumni and students, made 1900 calls 
and raised over $19,000. 

The University's capital campaign to raise $2.5 million 
from a concentrated number of special prospects has reached 
$1.5 million in gifts and future commitments. Thus far, this 
program has provided commitments of over $525,000 for en- 
dowment for the physical education building, over $500,000 
for instructional and program development, and almost 
$400,000 for general endowment. 


• The University was saddened by the death on August 28 of 
Alvin W. Carpenter "24, a member of the Board of Directors 
since 1960. Mr. Carpenter, the senior partner in the law firm 
of Carpenter, Carpenter, Diehl & Kivko, served as secretary 
of the Board. 

• Four members of the Board of Directors concluded their 
terms during the year: Dr. A. Roger Gobbel, Henry J. Keil, 
Kurt M. Kleis, Karen S. Matthias. Replacing Dr. Gobbel as a 
synodical representative is the Rev. Dr. Dale S. Bringman 
'48, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church, State College. 
Replacing Mr. Keil as an alumni representative is Dr. James 
C. Gehris '50, a physician from Shamokin. Miss Susan T. 
Grisee, a senior from Boonton, N.J., and Mr. Peter S. John- 
son, a junior from Ridgefield, Conn., join the Board as stu- 
dent representatives. Attorney John R. Miller of Bellefonte 
was also elected to the Board for a five-year term. 

• Dr. Jonathan C. Messerli, dean of the School of Education 
of Fordham University, was named the twelfth president of 
Susquehanna University effective September 1, 1977. He 
succeeds Gustave W. Weber who retired following 18 and 
one-half years in that office. 

• Dr. Homer D. Babbidge, president of The Hartford 
Graduate Center, gave the Commencement address on May 
21. Formerly Assistant U.S. Commissioner of Education, 
president of the University of Connecticut and then master of 
Timothy Dwight College, Yale Universtiy, Dr. Babbidge 
became president at Hartford last year. Dr. James R. 
Crumley Jr., secretary of the Lutheran Church in America, 
preached the Baccalaureate sermon.

means have reaffirmed their faith in the future of Susquehanna Univer- 
sity by providing substance to the educational program through their 
wills. Over the years the University has received bequests ranging

During the year ending June 30, 1977, Susquehanna received 
bequests from these estates; 

ROBERT H. HARTMAN. a member of the Class of 1925 and former 
teacher-coach died on January 17. 1976 in St. Petersburg. Florida. His 
bequest will be added to the University's endowment.

Township, York County, Pennsylvania, included Susquehanna 
University among his beneficiaries. He died on March 19. 1976. 

E. LARSON SIDOLA. a member of the Class of 1969. died on 
September 13, 1976. He was a business administration graduate who 
resided in Ft. Lauderdale. Florida. His bequest will be used to 
purchase books for the Roger Blough Learning Center.

FALL 1977 


From Concept to Reality: 


MOST PERSONS who have been on the Susquehanna 
campus since last May have seen the large, gold-leafed 
relief sculpture which dominates Weber Chapel Auditori- 
um's main foyer. What many may not know is how it came 
about, or w hat careful, painstaking steps are taken in the 
creation and installation of such a work. 

The chapel auditorium was dedicated in November of 
1966 and widely heralded as a performance facility 
without peer in central Pennsylvania. In his dedicatory ad- 
dress (Alumnus, Fall 1966) actor Efrem Zimbalist Jr. 
characterized the building, with its unique, multipurpose 
revolving stage, as a place "where worship and the per- 
forming arts may flourish together as they were wont to do 
of old." It has more than fulfilled this lofty prophecy 
during the succeeding years. 

When the Board of Directors named the chapel 
auditorium for Gustave Weber (S.U. President, 1 959-77) 
in 1975 a bronze plaque, including the Zimbalist quota- 
tion, was prepared for mounting. Shortly thereafter. 
Chairman John Horn appointed a nine-member Commis- 
sion to plan redecoration of the front foyer and directed 
that a work of art should be placed in it. 

The Commission determined, after considering a 
number of alternatives, that the space was an ideal setting 
for sculpture. The National Sculpture Society was con- 
sulted and its Advisory Board suggested possible artists. 
On-site interviews were arranged and Theodore Bar- 
barossa of Belmont, Mass., was selected to create a 
relief — to express the Zimbalist theme in visual form — to 
be placed on the large panel over the inside entrance to the 
auditorium. From among his three-dimensional sketches, 
about 17" X 13", the one at the top of the page was ap- 
proved in September 1976. The second photo shows the 
sculptor with the full-size (10' x 8') armature in his East 
Boston studio; and the third, the completed plastilene 
model ready for casting in hydrocal and gold-leafing last 

Meanwhile, plans were formulated for decorating the 
foyer. It was decided to use eight-fool high walnut pan- 
eling to relieve the cold atmosphere of the room, add living 
plants and benches, and provide several places for posting 
performance notices. A miniature model, pictured at top 
right, aided in this process and the work was done by Sus- 

\ W^^' Mif>/> V'^vv 



quehanna's Buildings and Grounds Department prior to 
installation of the sculpture. 

The 800-pound relief arrived in Selinsgrove early in 
May, was raised into position with the help of a fork lift, 
and hung on pre-set steel hangers of special design. 
Unveiling took place at a formal ceremony on May 20. 

S.U. Parents Association President Andrew Bozzelli 
praised the sculpture for "its spirit of God-given vocation" 
and for its real meaning "to our children and generations 
to come." The Association adopted funding of the Bar- 
barossa Sculpture and the Chapel Foyer decoration as its 
goal for the current year, aiming to raise $16,000 by June 
30, 1978. More than half the total has already been 
achieved and interested persons are asked to contact Carl 
M. Moyer. assistant director of development, at the

CAROL HARRIS CELMA '70 is one Spanish major who really put her degree to work. 
During her junior year abroad she was captivated by Spain itself — and met Vicente (above, her 
husband since 1975). .After graduation she returned to the country of her choice and began an 
active career teaching English to businessmen and doctors at the Center of North American 
Studies in Valencia. She also had a busy schedule translating articles for medical journals, 
travel guides, and a book on plastic surgery. Vicente, a graduite of the Polytechnic Institute, is 
a highway engineer in government work who spent the year 1 966-67 as an American Field Ser- 
vice student in Cleveland. Carol recently reduced her teaching load and now has some 30 
private students from the American Pharmaceutical Laboratory. 

The Celmas have an apartment in the center of Valencia, third largest city in Spain, and 
note many changes since the end of the Franco regime — when Carol, for example, paid only 
$20 in taxes per year. The new, liberal era has brought higher labor costs and higher prices for 
almost everything. But even with gasoline at about $2 per gallon, they enjoy driving their Seat 
(Spanish equivalent of Fiat 1 27), travels to France and England, skiing in the Pyrenees, bridge, 
bowling, and tennis. And Carol is enthusiastic about the continuing availability of handmade, 
artisan products. About her life, the Millersburg, Pa., native says, "I'm making the best use 1 
could of my college degree, working with the language and living it. I enjoy translating very 
much and get a great deal from my studies, I'm doing exactly what I want to do."

THE WINTER SPORTS CAMPAIGN promises to be a good one 
for Susquehanna teams. It is not stretching the imagination too far to 
say that a winning season is a good possibility for all three varsity 

« • * 

The men's basketball team is led by 5-8 guard Mike Scheib '78 
(Millersburg, Pa.) who was the top scorer on last year's 1 1-1 1 squad 
with an average of 18.2 points per game. Scheib is out to defend his ti- 
tle as the NCAA Division III free-throw shooting champ, which he 
won last year by making 80 of 85 attempts including 58 in a row. His 
.94 1 percentage, just short of the small college record of .944, was the 
third highest m NCAA small college history. 

Other returning lettermen are 6-8 center Bruce Bishop '78 
(Cranford, N.J.), 6-3 forward Jay Barthelmess '80 (Doylestown, 
Pa.). 6-4 forward Bruce Gessner '78 (Philadelphia, Pa.), and 5-11 
guard Randy Westrol '79 (Elizabeth, N.J.). Graduation took center 
Bob Hertzog, guard Ron Brett, and forward Dave Atkinson who 
played key roles last winter. However, Coach Don Harnum has a 
good group of recruits to fill in the gaps. 

Perhaps the most exciting newcomer is 5-11 guard Rodney 
Brooks '8 1 . This summer the Public Information Office received the 
tollowmg note from Herm Rogul of The Philadelphia Bulletin: "I 
thought you'd like to know that incoming Susquehanna basketball 
player Rodney Brooks, a guard from Philadelphia's St. Joseph's 
Prep, was elected Seniors MVP (over Gene Banks and 15 other 
college-bound all-stars) in the Sonny Hill League All-Star game at 
Temple's McGonigle Hall. Rodney shot 6-for-6, including two 
dunks, for 13 points. Ray Washington, Rodney's coach with the Dia- 
mond Medics team, calls him the fastest player he's had since George 
Gibson, Winston-Salem leader drafted by the '76ers." 

The men's hoop season was slated to start on Nov. 28-29 at the 
second annual Crusader Classic tournament with Susquehanna 
hostmg Haverford, Lmcoln, and Philadelphia Pharmacy. 
« » * 

The women's basketball team, which opens an expanded 12- 
game schedule in January, seems well set to improve on last year's 5-5 
mark. Coach Rose Ann Neff has her first six players back from last 
winter joined by eight newcomers, including six freshmen, who all 
have previous basketball experience. "It will be nice to have bench 
strength," says Coach Neff, who had a depth problem last year. The 
squad lacks height, with the tallest player listed at 5-10'/:, but should 
be able to compensate with speed and tough defense. The key 
returnee is 5-4 guard Val Metzger '80 (Milton, Pa.) who averaged 
17.4 points per game last year. 

« * » 

The big surprise of the campaign may come from the wrestling 
team which has had four straight losing seasons including 2-1 1 last 
year. Coach Charlie Kunes, who hit a recruiting bonanza, has 12 
good freshmen and one transfer student joining nine returning 
lettermen. Selinsgrove High School, a perennial wrestling power, 
provides 1 1 8-lb. Todd Burns '8 1 and 1 58-lb. Kurt Reiber '81. Barring 
injuries, the squad should be competitive in all the weight classes and 

will not have to give away the forfeit points that plagued recent teams. 

* « • 

Enjoying the most success among the fall sports teams were the 
soccer and cross country squads. Coach Neil Potter's hooters set a 
new school record with 35 goals enroute to a 7-4-2 mark. Bruce 

Wagenseller's harriers, the hardest-working, most dedicated group 
he's had in his six years as coach, finished 7-5, 

• • * 

The old S.U. soccer record for goals in one season was 28 by 
both the 1969 and 1974 teams in 12 games. The 1977 squad scored its 
29th goal in the tenth outing. Appropriately, it came from the foot of 
Greg Lowe '81 (Chatham, N.J.) who led the team with 10 goals for 
the season. Lowe is "as polished a freshman lineman as I've ever 
coached and has the promise of becoming the highest scorer in Sus- 
quehanna soccer history," says Coach Potter. The school record for 
career goals is 19 by Rob Hazel '77. Dan Travelet "66 holds the single 
game mark with five and the season standard with 1 6. Since Lowe has 
three years left and is already more than halfway to the career record. 
Coach Potter's prediction sounds pretty reliable. 

As good as the 1977 season was, it came very close to being much 
better. Three of the four losses were by one goal. Ironically, the 
Crusaders scored first in three of the defeats, leading Potter to joke 
that he was telling his squad to let the opponents score first. While the 
offense set a record, the defense came close— allowing only 1 7 goals, 
two more than the record 15 given up in 1973. Elizabethtown, which 
hit the net five times, was the only team to score more than two and 
there were four shutouts by goalies Mickey Walch '79 (Cranford, 
N.J.) and Bill Riggins '81 (Newtown Square, Pa.). 

Other top scorers were Tom Dunbar '80 (Millport, N.Y.) with 
six goals, Harry Hand '78 (Norristown, Pa.) with five, Steve Shilling 
'80 (Freehold, N.J.) with four, and Dave Odenath '79 (Plymouth 
Meeting, Pa.) with three. Other key players were halfbacks Tom 
Cook '78 (Loysville, Pa.) and Howie Baker '79 (Basking Ridge, N.J.) 
and fullbacks Steve Brugger '80 (Westfield, N.J.) and Rich Crouse 
'79 (Flanders, N.J.) There were only six seniors on the squad, and the 
1978 team promises to be another good one. 

* « * 

Wagenseller's "highly motivated" crosscountry team won some 
races "just on guts," according to the coach. An example is the ex- 
citing 27-28 victory at Delaware Valley. As expected, Crusader ace 
Russ Stevenson '80 (Wyckoff, N.J.) finished first. Chris Thiede '78 
(Melville, N.'Y.) surprised Delaware Valley by taking second place. 
However, the Aggies had the next four finishers and their fifth man 
came dow n the stretch holding seventh place, which would have given 
them the victory. But first Chris Haidinger '80 (Pompton Lakes, 
N.J), then Tim Taylor '81 (Newark, N.J.), and finally Dick Geib '80 
(Lancaster, Pa.) all passed the Aggie runner down the last 100 yards 
to win the meet by seconds. It was Susquehanna's first cross country 
victory over Delaware Valley since 1970. Earlier in the season the 
harriers had scored their first win over Juniata since 1969. 

Stevenson, who had broken the S.U. school record as a 
freshman, did even better this year. In the Wilkes race he broke the 
Susquehanna course record, held by Gettysburg's Mark Roddy, with 
a time of 23:32 for 4.9 miles. It was Stevenson's third straight record- 
setting performance. He had set course standards at Juniata and 
Dickinson in his previous two outings. Later, he lowered his own S.U. 
course time to 23:29 in winning a meet with Gettysburg. His second 
place finish in a field of 120 in the MAC meet paced the Crusaders to 
seventh place among 1 7 teams. The next day Stevenson ran 26 miles 
and 385 yards in 2:41:10 to place ninth in a field of 500 at the 
Harrisburg Marathon and raised nearly $1(X)0 for the Selinsgrove 
United Way campaign from members of the campus community who 
pledged an average of 10 cents per mile he ran. 

Susquehanna's women athletes had a miserable season record- 
wise, although they did score a "victory" of sorts by winning ad- 
ministrative approval for the first official intercollegiate volleyball 
team in University history. Coached by faculty wives Pat Reiland 
and Jinny Harnum and co-captained by Kathy Lehman '78 (York, 

FALL 1977 


Pa.) and Sherry Rohm "79 (Blain, Pa), the volleyball team failed to 
win a match. However, the large number of underclass women who 
participated gives hope for more success in the future. 

Coach Connie Delbaugh's field hockey team doubled last year's 
winlotal, but that still left it with just two wins in 10 games. The 
Crusader slick-wielders were held scoreless in seven of their first eight 
outings, but came through with a 1-0 victory over Dickinson in the 
finale to end on a positive note. It was the second shutout for goalie 
Chris Evans "78 (Villanova. Pa.) who did a great job under pressure 
all season. She was on the short end of three 1-0 scores as the S.U. 
women had trouble mustering any offense. Another standout was 
fullback Jo Ann Kinkel '78 (Red Lion, Pa.). 
« « * 

Another disappointing football campaign saw the Crusaders 
finish 2-7 for their seventh straight losing year. Susquehanna began 
the season with a young and inexperienced squad, especially in the 
offensive line, and key injuries further decimated the ranks as the fall 
progressed. Particularly damaging were the losses of quarterback 
Tom O'Neill '80 (West Reading. Pa.) in the first game and fullback 
Paul O'Neill '78 (Stratford. N.J.) in the third game. 

Despite the injuries, the Crusaders seemed in fairly good shape 
after a 28-7 win at Delaware Valley gave them a 2-4 mark with three 
games left. However, in two of the final three contests Susquehanna 
displayed what has become a perennial penchant for losing games 
that could have been won. 

Against Wilkes, the Crusaders took a 7-0 lead into the fourth 
quarter before a bad snap on a punt attempt, recovered by Wilkes in 
the S.U. endzone for a touchdown, allowed the Colonels to get back 
in the game and eventually win 14-7. At Liberty Baptist in 
Lynchburg, Va.. the Crusaders were ahead 28-21 in the final period 
and had a first down on the Flames' four-yard line. Susquehanna 
failed to get a score out of that opportunity, and Liberty Baptist won 

the game 29-28 on a 45-yard TO pass and a two-point pass conversion 

with 2:11 left. 

Susquehanna was led offensively by tailback Pete Burton '78 
(Chatham, N.J.) who gained 485 yards on 139 carries, scored five 
touchdowns, and was a perfect lO-for-IO on PAT kicks. He was 
named squad MVP by the coaching staff. Quarterback Pete An- 
narumma '80 (Valley Stream. N.Y.) completed 55 of 142 pass 
attempts for 534 yards, mostly to Hanker Vince LaSelva '78 
(Pottsville. Pa.) who caught 30 for 254 yards. Defensive efforts were 
paced by linebacker Bob Fessler '80 (Orwigsburg. Pa.), the tackling 
leader, and safety Dave Breymeir '78 (Duryea, Pa.), who had five in- 
terceptions, the most for a Crusader since Mike Fabian '74 set the 
school record with 10 in 1971. 

Alumni athletic contingents w ere featured on campus this fall in 
games against the varsity soccer and field hockey squads. A healthy 
turnout of 21 alumni participated in the soccer game, including nine 
former captains: Rich Pfeifer and Jerry Book '69. Tim Belotti '71, 
Karl Eickhoff '73, Rich Eickhoff '74. Pat Kregerand Jim Schrader 
'76. and Doug Miller and Bruce Fehn '77. The varsity won 2-1. 
Among the returning field hockey alumnae. 5-1 losers to the varsity, 
were Bobbie Fulton Duceman '73. Wanda Neuhaus '76, and Sue 
Booth '77. 

The Crusader Club, an all-sports booster club founded last year 
by students, is again at work under the advisership of Don Harnum. 
The club operates concession stands at home football and basketball 
games and helps sponsor the Crusader Classic Basketball Tourna- 
ment. Alumni are invited to become contributing members by send- 
ing name and address and $5 to the University's Public Information 
Office, which sends regular sports newsletters to the membership.

Susquehanna University has received 
a grant of $18,000 from the Shelby 
Cullom Davis Foundation to develop a 
model program for the teaching of 
business within the context of a liberal 
arts education. 

The project will comprise a new facet 
of Susquehanna's Business and Society 
program. In its first year, the Business 
and Society Program has focused on 
providing the liberal arts student with a 
better understanding of the role of 
business and free enterprise in Ameri- 
can society. 

The Davis grant will support develop- 
ment of methods for teaching business 
in a "liberal mode" and a business 
curriculum which incorporates the 
liberal arts and sciences and the fine arts 
in order to broaden intellectual horizons 
and increase awareness of human values 
on the part of the business major. 

That is, in addition to seeking better 
ways to teach business to the liberal arts 
student, Susquehanna will develop new 
means of teaching liberal arts to the 
business student. The University's 
proposal states: "The traditional liberal 
arts college must be able to educate 
liberally taught business majors as well 
as business-knowledgeable liberal arts 
students in an atmosphereof mutual un- 
derstanding and common purpose." 

In the words of Alfred North 
Whitehead: "The antithesis between a 
technical and liberal education is falla- 
cious. There can be no adequate tech- 
nical education which is not liberal, and 
no liberal education which does not im- 
part both technique and intellectual 

The 18-month S.U. plan calls for 
study of the relationship between 
business and liberal education and con- 


Susquehanna University will host 
two sports camps this summer, each to 
be directed by a Crusader head coach. 

The Keystone Football Camp will 
run from July 9 to 14 and is for players 
of both junior and senior high school 
age. Director Bill Moll will be assisted 
by 1 1 other college and high school 
coaches. Total cost is $100, with special 
rates for groups from the same school 
and for day campers. 

The Valley Basketball Camp, 
scheduled for July 16-21, is for boys on- 
ly, ages 10-18. Director Don Harnum 
has three other college coaches as well 
as high school coaches and college 
players on the staff. Cost is $99 total or 
$45 for commuters. 

Alumni may contact Moll for foot- 
ball and Harnum for basketball, in care 
of Susquehanna University. 

sideration of possible new courses and 
curricular changes for the fall of 1979. 

In notifying Susquehanna of the 
grant award. Foundation Chairman 
Shelby Cullom Davis said "it is our 
hope that your proposal will significant- 
ly improve understanding and com- 
munication between the academic and 
business communities." 

Susquehanna's Business and Society

College presidents not only take part 
in their own inaugurations {Susquehan- 
na Alumnus. Fall 1977), but are fre- 
quently invited to represent their in- 
stitutions at the inaugurations of other 
college presidents. Since time and dis- 
tance do not permit them to attend all 
such occasions, they often call upon 
other staff persons or alumni to serve as 

Recent inaugurals and Susquehanna 
representatives include: 

Walter J. Leonard at Fisk Univer- 
sity: J. Roberton MacColl IV '69, head 
of the Middle School, Ensworth School, 
Nashville, Tenn. 

Erno J. Dahl at Carthage College: 
The Rev. Dr. J. Stephen Bremer hc'74, 
senior pastor of Luther Memorial 
Church, Madison, Wis. 

Rodney O. Felder at Upsala College: 
The Rev. David G. Volk '52, pastor of 
Grace Lutheran Church, Perth Amboy, 

Pope A. Duncan at Stetson Univer- 
sity: Dr. Willard D. Allbeck '19, 
professor emeritus, Hamma School of 
Theology, now of DeLand, Fla. 

President Messerli himself was the 
delegate to the inaugurals of Mark C. 
Ebersole at Elizabethtown College and 
Ralph C. Schultz at Concordia College, 
Bronxville, N.Y.. as well as to the in- 
stallation of Dr. Gerhard A. Krodel 
hc'69 as dean of the Lutheran Theo- 
logical Seminary at Gettysburg. On 
Apr. 15 he will attend the presidential 
inaugural of Charles Glassick at Get- 
tysburg College. 

William E. Moll, credited with 
working rebuilding miracles at three 
Pennsylvania high schools, is the new 
head football coach at Susquehanna 

The appointment was made Jan. 31 
by University President Jonathan 
Messerli following the Jan. 30 resigna- 
tion of James Hazlett '52, head football 
coach for 1 2 years. Still athletic director 
and baseball coach. Hazlett had a 39- 
69-3 gridiron record at S.U. 

Moll is viewed by Susquehanna fans 
as a man who can revive the Crusaders" 
winning tradition. Rated among the top 
small college teams in the country in the 
early 1 950s and again in the early '60s, 
the Orange and Maroon has not en- 
joyed a winning season since 1970, when 
it won the MAC Northern Division 
championship and was 7-3. Last year's 
record was 2-7, following two successive 
3-6 campaigns. 

For the past two years Moll has been 
on the S.U. staff as an assistant football 
coach, assistant track coach, and in- 
structor in physical education. 

His first head coaching job was at 
Selinsgrove Area H.S. where in 1967 he 
took over a football program that had 
won only five games in three years. 
During five years under Moll, the Seals 
compiled a 36-14 mark and won four 
straight Susquehanna Valley League 
Class B championships. Moll was 
named the league's Coach of the Year 
three times and was honored as Lower 
Anthracite Region Coach of the Year in 

In one year, 1972, he brought 
Freedom H.S. in Bethlehem its first 
winning season ever at 6-4 and a city 
championship. He then moved on to 
Red Land H.S. in Lewisberry where 
within three years he took a winless 
team to its best record in history at 7-3. 
In 1975 he was tagged Class A Coach of 
the Year by the Old Timers Athletic 
Association of Central Pennsylvania. 

Announcing his appointment. Dr. 
Messerli said, "Bill Moll is familiar 
with the University and with our 
educational and athletic programs. He 
has demonstrated an unusual ability to 


Dr. John F. Lewis '27 of Sunbury is 
initiating a new scholarship for "an out- 
standing sophomore pre-ministerial 
student at Susquehanna." 

Dr. Lewis is professor emeritus and 
former head of the Biology Department 
at California State College of Penn- 

Over the years, he and his late wife 
have helped to support several 
theological students at both Susquehan- 
na University and Albright College, and 
then through their seminary studies as 



motivate the student-athlete and we 
have every confidence that he can build 
a competitive football program within 
the framework of Susquehanna's edu- 
cational goals and objectives." 

Moll says he is "very excited" and 
considers the opportunity a "tremen- 
dous challenge." He is "extremely 
hopeful we can make the S.U. football 
program a competitive one and a win- 
ning one." 

The new head mentor attended 
Upper Perkiomen H.S. and Wyoming 
Seminary and in 1 964 earned the B.S. in 
health and physical education from 
West Chester State College. 

Jim Hazlett's resignation was offered 
in response to a Task Force report 
which recommended that he be replaced 
as head football coach. 

The five-member Task Force on 
Intercollegiate Athletics was appointed 
by Dr. Messerli in November. The 
group gathered information from stu- 
dent representatives of all inter- 
collegiate teams, coaches, alumni, 
faculty, and staff, and submitted its 
report to the President on Jan. 16. The 
recommendation concerning the foot- 
ball coaching post was among several 
proposals, both long- and short-range. 

While citing many positive aspects of 
the University's athletic program, the 
committee reported that the lack of 
success over a period of years in the 
major sport of football has refiected 
negatively on the image of Susquehan- 
na. The Task Force report states that 
"the University has every right to ex- 
pect the Susquehanna athletic program 
to strive for a distinction among its 
peers comparable to that expected of 
the University's academic program." 

Hazlett lettered in football, basket- 
ball, and baseball as a Crusader. He 
played football under Co-coaches 
Amos Alonzo Stagg Sr. and Jr.. who 
guided Susquehanna through an un- 
defeated season in 1951. In the same 
year Hazlett was selected first-team 
offensive center on the AP Little All- 
American squad. 

He taught mathematics and coached 
football at Springdale H.S., earned a 
master's degree in math from the 
University of Pittsburgh, and had a 
head football coaching record of 13-18- 
2 at Edinboro State College before 
taking the S.U. job in 1966.

Dr. Erie I. Shoberl II. vice chairman of the SU Board and vice president 

for research of the Stackpole Carbon Co.. addressed the Seminar briefly. 

emphasizing that persons have to make and adapt to change and therefore 

must be willing to take risks and be involved in order to accomplish. 

HISTORICALLY, the liberal arts have provided students 
with the basic intellectual and moral tools needed to prepare 
for life. More recently, liberal arts institutions too often have 
failed to articulate their philosophy and importance, have 
compromised principles to attain short-term expediencies, 
and have failed to make their role relevant to the changing 
needs of society. Thus, liberal arts studies have come under 
increasing attack, particularly in this decade. Their value is 
seriously questioned and some critics state outright that the 
liberal arts are passe. 

This state of affairs poses a dilemma for liberal arts 
colleges like Susquehanna: a dilemma which translates into a 
challenge and, ultimately, an opportunity. The colleges are 
challenged to rethink about their role as liberal arts in- 
stitutions, to redefine that role in contemporary terms, and to 
interpret it clearly to the general public. 

As one step in this process, Susquehanna University 
sponsored a Liberal Arts Seminar last fall. One of the ac- 

tivities of Inauguration Week, it was held on October 1 3 and 
entitled "Liberal Education: The Search for Meaning." 
More than 100 students and faculty members attended and 
heard sublopic presentations from three guest panelists: Dr. 
Jacquelyn Mattfeld, president of Barnard College in New 
York City, "The Intellectual and the Aesthetic"; Dr. Ray- 
mond M. Bost, president of the Lutheran Theological 
Seminary at Philadelphia, "The Spiritual Dimension"; 
George Strimel Jr., general manager of WVIA/TV-FM, 
Channel 44, Public Broadcasting Center in Pittston, Pa., "A 
World of Technology and Leisure." The moderator was the 
late Dr. Charles A. Rahter, professor of English, who died on 
December 24. Student responses were made by David C. 
Bateman "79. music education major from Wayne, Pa.; 
Joseph R. Kimbel "78, organ major from Danville. Pa.; 
Wayne T. Lupole '78, sociology major from Wilkes-Barre. 
Pa.; and James W. Cooper '78, communications c& theatre 
arts major from Westfield, N.J. 


The Search for Meaning 

Accumulating the 

internal resources 

suggesting that "What is liberal education?" is the prior and 
apposite question. "What are the liberal arts? There has not 
been entire agreement about these questions in our times." 
He reviewed the traditional understanding of the liberal arts, 
the artes liberates of the ancient Romans that are appropriate 
to free men, underscoring that liberales means free. 

"I think that part of it is very important today ... in an- 
cient Rome only free men were allowed to participate in this 
kind of education. In the medieval universities it evolved into 
seven studies: the three ways and the four ways, the trivium 
and the quadhvium. And this is where we derive seven liberal 
arts." (The trivium included the lower division studies — 
grammar, rhetoric, and logic. The quadrivium included the 
higher division studies comprising the mathematical sciences 
of arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music.) 

"What are they, however, today? Are the liberal arts 
only the humanities, as some say? Or, are they the humanities 
plus the sciences? What is education vis-a-vis training? My 
personal bias is that education and training are two different 
things and this forms the separation between liberal 
arts/liberal education and professionalism/vocationalism in 
the practical arts." 

He referred to a number of classic essays on education 
and how it should be conducted, recommending that they be 

reread by those who wish to explore the subject on their 
own — Whitehead and Russell, Stringfellow Barr, Jacques 
Barzun, Marten TenHoor, all have much to tell us. 

"The liberal education or the liberal arts," Dr. Rahter 
said, "should provide us with what TenHoor, in his famous 
essay on 'Education for Privacy,' calls an understanding of 
the world, a vision of the good life, serenitive spirit, apprecia- 
tion and practice of the fine arts. These are the elements of the 
integrated personality, the development of which is the im- 
mediate object of liberal education. These are the resources 
that the educated person has at his disposal. And, like your 
savings account at the bank, they are accumulated in the 
course of education. Why does every individual need them? 
Because he's going to face certain situations in life, inevitably, 
in which they will be the only resources he can draw on. 
Without them, the individual has nothing to turn to when the 
misfortunes and frustrations of life become his lot. And as 
you know, when troubles come they come not as single spies, 
but in battalions. 

"Some of us remember the late '20s and '30s when many 
people lost their external resources, found that life was over 
for them. . . . Why? Because the internal resources had not 
been accumulated. This, I think, is the primary role of the 
liberal arts." 

WINTER 1978 


Enjoying every aspect 
of the mind 

ship I think exists between liberal education and what we 
sometimes refer to as Titanism and the place of the arts in 
liberal education, because I think it is so widely mis- 
understood among academicians generally — and particularly 
among those who like best to talk about the virtues of liberal 
arts education." 

She commented on the fact that the arts have a very low 
profile at many prestigious institutions: "I think the reason 
for that is deeply imbedded in our natural and national 
heritage. .As Christians, we've had a long tradition of being 
confused about whether it was all right or not all right to enjoy 
the senses, and about whether beauty and beauty appreciated, 
disciplined, and expressed at its very highest level — as an 
honor to God — were or were not possible for the individual 
who also wished to be good. Now liberal education has a long 
tradition, and for a good part of its tradition it has been in 
diametric opposition to the tradition of which our church is a 
part. We have, therefore, built in a conflict which has been 
transposed across the centuries and right down into our 
modern contemporary society. 

"We are taught on the one hand to be deeply ap- 
preciative of that which is beautiful and, indeed, we are en- 
couraged to speak our appreciation of the arts and of natural 
beauty. On the other hand, there is a kind of distrust and 
suspicion of those who write, paint,act (for a living), though it 
may be all right in modest quantity if done avocationally. 
Now if one then moves this activity and this attitude into 
education and begins to consider what we have, we find a 
curious dichotomy within our notions of the purposes of 
liberal education and that which should be taught or included 
within it. Most of us would agree that the purpose of liberal 
education lies, at least, in the general area of developing in the 
individual human being: discipline of mind, the freeing of the 
imagination, and the control of unbridled emotion which may 
be destructive or self-indulgent, so that in the service of the in- 
tellect and imagination it may be transformed into that which 
is useful, beautiful, and good. 

"For most of us, the understanding that the liberal 
education of human beings begins at the cradle and continues 
until physical death is very hard to remember when we are 
lock-stepped into the four years of high school, four years of 
college, make-it-or-bust routine. Yet, in truth, liberally 
educated people are recognized by certain attributes. Among 
them: the ability to make judgments, to be willing to exercise 
values in all aspects of life, to be free of prejudice, to consider 

all points of view and yet be willing to have one point of view, 
to enjoy many forms of debate, many sides of questions, and 
always and at all times to be above partisanship, above 
narrowness, and above that kind of niggardliness of spirit 
which inhibits the freest possible discovery that is open to 
humans and their minds." 

She said that, under these circumstances, it is not 
primarily a matter of what disciplines are taught but, rather, 
how they are taught and whether, in the teaching-learning 
process, "we are concerning ourselves with the discipline of 
the intellect, the awareness that comes with the trained mind, 
trained eye, ear — all senses — as well as other aspects of 

Seen this way, the arts assume their rightful place within 
the entire spectrum. If we then look at our curricula, said Dr. 
Mattfeld, we must ask ourselves whether we include music, 
art, drama, and literature for the sake of "pre-self- 
expression" or for the purpose of discovery — discovery in the 
self of the "same limitations and possibilities, the same craft 
and the same ways of dealing with a body of knowledge and a 
body of expression that is comparable to the imaginative 
leaps of science, of the analytic skills of language, or the non- 
verbal language of mathematics." 

She said that the serious study of the crafts which un- 
derlie every art and make possible the freeing of aesthetic ap- 
preciation and the understanding that leisure as it is lived, no 
less than that which is performed, can be either vocational or 
avocational — regardless of the discipline. And it should be of 
equal quality. And that's where the rub comes in. 

"No one teaching English literature changes his or her 
standards . . . from the grounds that it is always going to be 
avocational, except for perhaps one student in 500 who 
chooses to go on to teach it. No person I know would change 
his or her views or how rigorous the standards in philosophy 
or in mathematics because of the possible use or non-use the 
student may put it in later life. But, how many institutions are 
willing to treat the arts as sandbox play? How many are 
willing to allow our students to slop about in happy self- 
expression like the finger painting they knew as young? 

"We. I believe, as both students and faculty, have it 
encumbent upon us — particularly those who come out of a 
very rich. Judeo-Christian tradition — to enjoy all aspects of 
the mind's fireworks and quiet coals. And we have an ab- 
solute mandate that we shall treat seriously and with joy. each 
aspect of the disciplines that constitute a liberal education." 


RAYMOND BOST STATED that to comment on "the 
spiritual dimension" involves a consideration of "religious 
commitment and moral responsibility, and the way in which 
those aspects of human experience contribute to the discovery 
of life's meaning. ... I believe morality is a part of one's 
religious perspective, and only when there is a reasonable cor- 
relation between one's growth of intellect and one's growth in 
moral stature is a person likely to experience life's richest 

He said it is too often assumed "that growth in moral in- 
sight and responsibility is either incidental to human ex- 
istence or an automatic by-product of education." Citing the 
Enlightenment and its contribution to thecompartmentaliza- 
tion of human experience: "Those who worshiped at the 
shrine of Reason tended to regard spiritual matters as 
vestiges of superstition soon to be eradicated by the steady ad- 
vance of the intellect." Even today, many will insist that con- 
cern for religion, especially in its organized forms, is merely 
an option in life. "The implication is that if your interests 
focus instead on collecting postage stamps, attending athletic 
events or exploring caves, that may be just as profitable an 
outlet for your energy and concern." 

On the other hand, he observed, "there are those who 
seem to assume that intellectual progress inevitably carries in 
its train moral progress." Not so, as the lessons of history 
make clear. Our "enlightened" 20th century has already 
produced 14 genocides in each of which more than 100,000 
human lives were extinguished. While some involved 
"backward" and "uneducated" people, that is hardly the case 
with the slaughter of several million Jews under the Nazis. 
"Surely, if the development of the intellect alone could usher 
in the millenium. Hitler's Germany was in the forefront of 
those prepared to welcome the new age. But even if there had 
not been a holocaust in the Third Reich, we would still have 
Watergate ... to remind us that intelligence divorced from 
morality can erode the vitality even of a great Nation." 

Dr. Bost asked, "What is religion? If by 'religion' we 
mean that system of beliefs and values around which a per- 
son's life is organized and which permeates both one's 
thinking and one's actions, then we must hasten to add that 
there are religions, both formal and informal, which assume 
one can discover within one's own private life the significance 
of life itself. . . . Those who see religion primarily as 
something man does in order to improve or elevate himself 
may have little difficulty with the contention that private 
morality and spiritual development can be divorced from 

social relationships and public life." 

He said that as social order and community disintegrate, 
we are all pressured toward living out life as solitary in- 
dividuals who must find whatever meaning we can in our in- 
ner being. But frustration and futility ensue. The "hollowness 
of such privatized existence" is captured in the poetry of T. S. 
Elliot. Saint Anthony, credited with being the father of Chris- 
tian monasticism, found another way when he sought out the 
cobbler of Alexandria. Martin Luther commented eloquently 
on the contrast between the quest for personal fulfillment 
through private religious exercises and through social interac- 
tion in his exposition of John 21:16 when he reminded his 
listeners that "the world is full of God. In every lane you meet 
Christ. You find him at your door. Do not stand gaping into 
heaven, saying, if only I could see our Lord God, how eager I 
should be to render him every service possible. . . . Go and 
comfort your sad and sick neighbors, help them with your 
possessions, wisdom, and skill." 

And, as Saint Paul argues in the 13th chapter of First 
Corinthians, there are many religious or spiritual gifts which 
may enrich human life, but none surpasses in excellence the 
gift of love. "And the first thing that must be said about love." 
said Dr. Bost, "is that it is relational. If it is not relational but 
merely self-love, it is sin. ... To come to know the love that is 
God's very nature is to begin to learn how to relate to other 
persons with compassion and concern. To learn to love others 
is to discover in one's own experience the real significance of 

Relating liberal learning to concern for the ethical and 
the theological: "It has been suggested that a liberal educa- 
tion should enable one to inquire accurately, to evaluate wise- 
ly, to understand synoptically, and to communicate clearly. 
Theology in the Christian tradition insists that God is truth. 
The fact of God's revelation has often been obscured by 
debates about the scope of God's revelation, but the recogni- 
tion by increasing numbers of churchmen that God did not in- 
tend the Bible to be a substitute for scientific investigation has 
freed Christian thought to affirm and applaud not just 
'theological' truths but truths laid bare by the accurate in- 
vestigations of scientists, historians, and literary craftsmen as 
well. If the liberal arts encourage the quest for truths through 
accurate inquiry, they can hardly be inimical to the faith of 
those whose God is Truth. 

"The liberal arts in general and the humanities in par- 
ticular are said to promote an appreciation of values. The per- 
son who has been liberated from ignorance and prejudice 

WINTER 1978 

should have grown not only in the ability to distinguish right 
and wrong, justice and injustice, but also to engage in the 
more subtle distinctions between the good and better, and the 
better and the best. Surely those who teach values have no 
stronger ally that those whose religious commitments lead 
them to affirm the primacy of the ethical as the appropriate 
medium through which to express one's theological convic- 

"It is said liberal learning should free persons from 
narrowness of perspective by enabling them to understand 
synoptically. As indicated in our earlier definition of 
"religion," it is a system of beliefs, assumptions, commitments 
that constitute the very organizing principle of one's life, the 
frame of reference which enables one to make sense of things. 
This integrating function is one religion performs for its 
devotees, so religion and the liberal arts have some parallel 

aims which in a college of the church can readily become a 
common goal for religion and the liberal arts, namely, 
helping persons integrate their learnings into meaningful 
relationships and patterns or systems."" 

As for communicating clearly, if real life for human 
beings is not merely a '"private" matter but involves relating 
to others, then the fine art of communicating is not just in- 
cidental to the liberal arts. And, as we have seen, effective 
communication is as important theologically as it is peda- 

"Thus, theology and liberal learning go well together. 
They have overlapping hopes and aspirations as they seek to 
stimulate and nurture persons in their development. And 
nowhere should their common concerns find a happier blend- 
ing than in a community of learning that is also a community 
of faith, a college of the church." 

Communicating ideas 
. ttirougti teclinology 

GEORGE STRIMEL SPOKE about the constancy of 
change in technology and referred to the fact that when he 
first went to the University of Virginia 25 years ago public 
broadcasting did not exist. There were those who talked of the 
need for liberal education but "like all eager young people of 
my day and age, I was anxious to be done with all of that and 
into the important things." It was only later that same year, 
he said, that the first station of the kind he now manages ac- 
tually came on the air. "If I had listened to those who said, 
"Seek right from the beginning the career, go and know where 
you're going and get it," I might have been very happily spin- 
ning records at some radio station in Backwater. Virginia, 
perhaps. But I was lucky enough to have been steered in the 
direction of liberal education and the world of ideas, and not 
necessarily things. Ideas change, of course, but they don't 
seem to change as rapidly as things." 

He indicated that when he started in radio it was a totally 
different world — there was no automation, most records were 
78s. and all the technology was changing — but the education 
he pursued "was hurled at me . . . and was the sort of thing 
that was able to stick. . . . Since I had always sought an 

academic career, not of distinction but of maximum leisure, I 
put into immediate use the wonders of the library. And when 
we talk of technology, we forget that the book itself is a 
product of technology, and it has greatly changed the world 
and society. 

""But what's in the book and on the air and in the 
machine? What's in the spare time? I've noticed something 
very disheartening of late in my business: we are getting a lot 
of negative reaction to ideas." He referred to two recent 
public broadcasting productions, one a discussion with the 
imperial wizard of the KKK and the other featuring the leader 
of the Nazi party in America. Despite our disgust with the 
ideas of such persons, everyone has a right to be heard. And 
those who express honorable and good thoughts have the 
same right. 

Strimel said there is a problem of access for the average 
person, "Someone wrote, 'The freedom of the press belongs 
to anyone who owns one,' and that is quite true. If you happen 
to be a broadcaster you have freedom of the press, but what if 
you don't have a tower, and an antenna, and a million dollars 
worth of equipment?" One of the roles of public broadcasting 


is to maximize the access to the system, to deal with the 
matter of input from the public and individuals who otherwise 
have no opportunity to be heard, to try to create the alter- 

"The pressure has been on many institutions, such as this 
one, to get into the business of what we might call 'narrow- 
casting," rather that broadcasting, of saying 'OK, the world 
needs 428 something-or-others; why don't we turn them out?" 
We could follow the model that in essence is followed in 
engineering — a relatively narrow curriculum — or medicine, 
where you hone toward a certain goal. But what happens 
when the world changes beneath you, when things turn out 

"My recommendation for any school that might be 
training communicators for the future is to offer a good 
liberal arts education. The dials, the technology, will 

probably be outmoded by the time you graduate. It is certain- 
ly true that most schools cannot afford to keep up with every 
gymcrack. The IRS allowsbroadcastingto writeoff its equip- 
ment in six years! But the ideas, the ability to work with ideas 
and not fear ideas . . .'" 

He speculated on future technology and leisure and an- 
nounced that the next revolution is already here — the world of 
the minicomputer, with vast amounts of information right at 
our fingertips, all kinds of interconnections, interfaces, and 
excitement. He looks forward to the ideas this will bring to 
people. And he urged those who would communicate to "get a 
good, basic liberal education and learn about this world you 
seek to broadcast to. . . . If we have that kind of education, we 
can manage the technology. And if we don't manage 
technology, technology manages us." 

Joe Kimbel reacts positively to Dr. Mattfeld's thesis about the "how" of teaching. 
Seated at the rostrum are Jim Cooper, Strimel, Dr. Rahler. Wayne Lupole, and David 
Bateman. Cooper expressed confidence that his liberal education will help him meet 
the challenge of the world of work. Lupole spoke about the importance of responsible 
commitment and action as a manifestation of the "life-long adventure to seek out, 
uncover and employ that ever-changing specialness within each of us." Bateman 
said that the study of liberal arts begins with the individual and "we must be free 
to express ourselves because we each have a message to give the world that is unique 
. . . then from understanding ourselves we must go on to communicating with others." 

WINTER 1978 


The Quickest Man on the Court 


THE LONG, FRIZZY HAIR is blown backward by the 
force of his own motion as he zooms down the basketball 
court, 5'8" and tightly-muscled at 165 pounds, legs churning 
so that the ball has trouble keeping up and he's on the verge of 
palming it, changing directions like a water bug, switching 
hands and going behind the back if necessary, shifting gears, 
and then he zips free — to pass, to drive to the hoop, seeming 
to defy gravity as he hangs in mid-air and finds the opening, or 
to pull up in a fiash for the jump shot. 

Any coach can tell you basketball is fundamentally a 
team game, but the player and fan know there are many 
moments when individual brilliance claims the spotlight — 
Kareem sweeping in a sky-hook. Dr. J on a dunk from 1 5 feet, 
David Thompson on the alley-oop. Maybe Mike Scheib can't 
compare to that trio, but there are few players any size in 
small college basketball, and few players his size anywhere, 
who can dominate a game the way he has on several occasions 
during his remarkable career at Susquehanna. His total of 
1527 points makes him the third highest scorer in S.U. history 
and the highest-scoring Crusader guard ever. Only Rick 
Eppehimer '68 with 2546 and Clark Mosier '63 with 1801 
have scored more points for the Orange and Maroon. 

The popular speculation often applied to the small man 
in basketball is "how much better he would be if he were 
taller." This kind of discussion ignores the fact that if Mike 
Scheib were 6'8" (which is an editorial mistake made by at 
least onenewspaper) instead of 5'8" he just wouldn't be Mike 
Scheib. His advantage is that he is the quickest man on the 
court, especially with the ball. Increasing his size would only 
slow him down. Let bigger men control the air above the rim; 
Mike Scheib controls the Hoor. 

Mike reached the 30-point mark six times during his 
S.U. career. In three of those games this year he also had nine 
assists. Opposing coaches agree there have been few players 
in the Middle Atlantic Conference who can take over a game 
the way Scheib can. 

As the saying goes, "when he's hot, he's hot." Mike 
never got his points by being a "gunner." He collected large 
totals simply because, when he got it going, he didn't miss. He 
made the most of his opportunities, sometimes shooting over 
80 percent for a game. He sank 5 1 percent of his field goal 

attempts durmg his four-year career, including 53 percent his 
senior year. 

.^s a junior, he received national attention for his free- 
throw shooting. He made 58 in a row over one stretch and 
finished the year as the top foul shooter in NCAA Division 
III. His. 941 percentage was the third highest in NCAA small 
college history. 

While many teams have one guard who's a shooter and 
one who's a ball handler, Scheib had to be both during most of 
his S.U. career. His ball-handling skills, especially valuable 
in beating a press or running out the clock, excited Crusader 
fans as much as his shooting. He was a team leader in assists, 
attesting to his unselfishness and passing ability. 

"He's the most complete player I've ever coached, 
regardless of position," says Coach Don Harnum, veteran of 
five years at the helm at the University of Delaware and four 
years at Susquehanna. "I'm the kind of coach that is con- 
stantly shouting instructions," says Harnum, "but I had to 
say very little to Mike. He has excellent court-awareness. As 
captain this year, he provided team leadership mostly by good 
example," says Harnum. 

Scheib's greatest asset, according to Harnum, is his 
ability to change directions with the ball. Many players, the 
coach notes, can make sharp cuts when moving without the 
ball, but very few can match Scheib's quickness while 
dribbling the ball. This trait "opens things up" for Scheib and 
the other players on the team, Harnum says. Thus the 
Crusader strategy on fast breaks was simple — get the ball to 
Scheib. Because of Mike's ability to "make things happen," 
Harnum would often disdain the usual coach's ploy of calling 
time-out to set up a play for a last shot with only seconds left 
on the clock. "If Scheib is moving up the court with the ball, 
an opportunity is likely to develop," he says. "Calling time- 
out just gives the defense a chance to set up." 

Another of Scheib's attributes, in Harnum's words, is his 
uncanny ability to change gears. Doing his version of the O.J. 
Simpson "juke" or the "Ali shuffle," Scheib seems to go into 
suspended animation for a few seconds — his feet keep pump- 
ing but his body slows down — until the defender makes the 
mistake of slowing down also, and then suddenly Mike is 
back at full speed and the defender is left behind. 



He also has incredible "hang time" for a player of his 
si^e. A fter leaving the floor on a drive to the hoop, he seems to 
defy gravity, floating in midair until an opening develops. 
"There's no player in the league who can stop him one on 
one." asserts Harnum. 

Strength and conditioning are other qualities which con- 
tributed to Scheib's success. Like John Havlicek, he never 
stops moving. And he's durable. Often knocked to the floor, 
he always got up and kept going. He started every game from 
his freshman year on and only missed part of one contest 
because of injury. 

Underrated and often unnoticed by the fans is Scheib's 
defensive ability. "We never had problems defensively 
because of his size," says Harnum. "He doesn't give up 
points." His great quickness allows him to overplay, keeping 
his man from getting the ball or staying between him and the 

Scheib was born with speed and quickness. His great 
ball-handling and shooting abilities had to be developed with 
hours and hours of practice. Beginning at an early age he 
spent a great deal of time working on his skills. While growing 
up in Millersburg, Pa., he used to bounce a basketball 
through the house. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Scheib, 
say they drew the line at the dinner table when Mike wanted 
to eat with one hand while dribbling a ball with the other. 

Aher an outstanding career at Millersburg High, Mike 
was recruited by many colleges across the country, including 
the "Big Five" in Philadelphia and such mid-size basketball 
powers as Davidson, Old Dominion, Roanoke, and Rich- 
mond. He chose Susquehanna because it was close to home 
and because he figured he would play more basketball at a 
small school. Mike thinks he could have played at a Division I 
or 1 1 school and admits he might choose differently if he had it 
to do over again. However, he says he has no regrets about his 
decision. He appreciates the recognition, the close friend- 
ships, and the individual academic attention that were avail- 
able to him at Susquehanna. A finance major, Mike has been 
a Dean's List student. His classroom achievements as well as 
his basketball abilities were recognized when he earned selec- 
tion on the Academic All-America squad last year. 

Despite his individual accomplishments, Mike remains a 
team-oriented player. When asked to cite the biggest thrill of 
his Crusader career, he talks about a contest in which he 
scored only 12 points. That was in the final game of his 
freshman year when S.U. upset highly-favored Scranton, 69- 

Although Mike is a good student, there is no denying 
that his first love is basketball. After graduation, he hopes to 
find a job in business or government in the Harrisburg area. 
He won't be too disappointed if he doesn't land one, however. 
He plans to play basketball in a semi-pro summer league in 
New Jersey, and hopes to get a tryout with a professional 
team in Europe. "I've talked to players in the European 
league, and it sounds like a great opportunity," says Mike. 

Coach Harnum, when asked how it would feel to have to 
defend against Mike in next year's Alumni game, jokingly 
responds that he's not scheduling the Alumni again. Harnum 
might not have to worry. Next year Mike may be adding 
foreign language clippings to his scrapbook.

'7 Love a Microscope^ 

Dr. Donald M. Pace '28, one of the world's important cancer 
researchers, has "retired" at the University of the Pacific. 
Recipient of Susquehanna's Aiumni Achievement Award in 
1961 and honorary Doctor of Science in 1963, he is a son of 
the late James W. Pace '27, brother of Ruth Pace Fuellhart 
'29, and uncle of Susan Fuellhart Loyd '69. The Alumnus is 
indebted to UOP's News Bureau Director Richard Doty for 
this story and the photograph of Don in his laboratory. 

STOCKTON— When Don Pace began his career as a 
cellular research scientist there was a disease of great concern 
to the medical community — it was called cancer. 

This was also a time when two forms of sickness people 
feared the most — polio and tuberculosis — often caused 
death, and anyone with blood poisoning was in trouble. 

The year was 1928. 

Now, nearly 50 years later, Don Pace has retired after a 
career that saw him become a noted expert for his work with 
tissue culture in the fields of cancer research and air pollution. 

Pace, who spent the last 10 years at the University of the 
Pacific School of Pharmacy, published more than 100 
research papers and received research grants totaling nearly 
$1 million while pursuing his scientific interests. 

He reflected recently on such things as cancer, smoking, 
air pollution and scientific research. 

"Back in 1928 we didn't understand very much about 
cancer. Uterine cancer was proving to be fatal for many 
women, and we have made significant advances to reduce this 
problem. We also have a better understanding of the 
biochemistry of the cells," he added, "but it is hard to say 
when there will be a cure because there are so many different 
kinds of cancer. There still is a lot we don't know. I do 
remember that back around 1955, with the advent of things 
like chemotherapy, some scientists were predicting that we 
would have a cure for cancer within five years. I wish this 
would have been true." 

Pace, whose current title of emeritus professor involves 
some lecture work in physiology and pharmacology, spent 25 
years at the University of Nebraska before he came to 

While at UOP he served as acting academic vice presi- 
dent and directed a special symposium in Washington, D.C., 
for some 1000 scientists at a meeting of the Tissue Culture 

The scientist has been a delegate to the International 
Society for Cell Biology meetings in Scotland and France, 
served as a delegate to the International Cancer Congress in 
Moscow, and been the Damon Runyon Cancer Lecturer at 
New York University. 

"I love a microscope," he says with a smile of apprecia- 
tion for his life-long work in scientific research. He recalls, 
humorously, that he was so devoted to his work in his early 
years that he was becoming "somewhat of a recluse. ... I 
would stay up working until 3 a.m., then sleep for awhile on a 
cot I had brought to the lab before getting up at 5 a.m. to start 
work again. I just couldn't get away from the microscope." 
Then he met Norma Holland, who later became Mrs. Donald 
Pace, and that got him out of the laboratory— on occasion. 

"To see the living substance of a cell and how it gets 
around, and how it gets food is simply fascinating but hard to 
explain to someone who is not a scientist. It's still hard to get 
me away from a microscope if something interesting is going 
on under the lens." 

He said it is certainly easier to perform research now 
with devices like electronic cell counters that can total 10,000 
cells or more in about 15 seconds. "We used to have to count 
tissue cells under a microscope in the same way we counted 
blood cells, one at a time," he recalls. 

Pace voiced puzzlement that so many young people con- 
tinue to smoke today when the evidence linking smoking to 
cancer is so strong. "1 think many people are cutting back 



though — I quit for 20 years — and you see more places with no 
smoking signs as a constant reminder to people of the 

The 70-year-old Pace holds an honorary degree from 
Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania — his alma 
mater — for the worldwide recognition of his research on 
cancer cells. He also holds M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from 
Duke University. 

Air pollution is a problem he has seen become an in- 
creasing menace to society in the past several years. "When I 
first came to Pacific in 1967 you could see Mt. Diablo quite 
clearly on most days, but now it is the exception more than the 
rule — and it is due to pollution. It is a problem all over the 
country, despite the work to reduce pollution in many of our 
cities." He voiced no magic cure on what to do about the 
situation, but he does feel strongly that something needs to be 

In discussing scientific advances, he feels finding a cure 
for polio was the greatest achievement in his lifetime. But, he 
added that another significant accomplishment in the 1930s 
was the development of sulfur drugs for use in such strep- 
tococcal diseases as blood poisoning. "At that time blood 
poisoning was very dangerous and quite often fatal, but 
now — even though we don't use sulfur drugs much 
anymore — this illness isn't much of a problem." 

Pace feels scientific research, like so many other things 
today, has become quite specialized. "Scientific research has 
been good for humanity because it leads to so many ways of 
prevention and cure. The amount of money available, 
however, has been in peaks and valleys in terms of govern- 
ment support. When LBJ was president, for example, there 
was a lot of interest in clinical research — at the expense of 
basic research — but that has leveled off a lot in recent years," 
he concluded.

ALUMNI BECOME accustomed to receiving requests for 
aid from their alma mater — usually these solicitations in- 
volve fund-raising. However, there are other equally impor- 
tant ways in which alumni can serve the University. The two 
programs outlined here have been recommended and sanc- 
tioned by alumni themselves through the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Alumni Association. The University's Ad- 
missions and Career Development efforts, although separate 
and distinct operations, have become increasingly related and 
complementary during recent years. Colleges are competing 
for students from a shrinking population of high school 
graduates. Rising college costs, high unemployment, and 
other factors make prospective students increasingly con- 
cerned about job prospects. These pressures combine to make 
student recruitment crucial to the University, as Career 
Development becomes a vital service provided for students. 
While important in its own right, a strong Career Develop- 
ment program also helps the Admissions Office in "selling" 
Susquehanna to prospective students. The Alumni Ad- 
missions Assistants and Alumni Career Advisers programs 
are ways in which graduates can put their experience, exper- 
tise, and energy to work for Susquehanna. 


TO THE UNINITIATED, admissions may mean simply 
collaring prospective students and pointing them towards 
Selinsgrove. It is true that through the years this kind of ac- 
tivity by alumni has brought many students to Susquehanna. 
But, in today's complex and highly competitive student 
recruitment operation, there are many other ways in which 
alumni can help, according to Paul W. Beardslee, director of 

Of course, identifying new prospects will always remain 
an important contribution alumni can make. However, there 
are several steps that must be taken between the time a 
prospect first learns about Susquehanna and the actual 
matriculation of a new student. 

Alumni volunteers can assist in follow-up, part of the 
inquiry-application-enrollment procedure through which the 
Admissions Office seeks to maintain and develop the recruit's 
interest in the University. The Admissions Office will supply 
the names of prospective students in the volunteer's area; the 
volunteer is asked to contact these prospects and provide 

them with advice and information about S.U. programs. 

.Alumni can also assist with the Regional Information 
Programs or "Road Shows" conducted by the Admissions 
Office at off-campus locations in key areas from which Sus- 
quehanna draws students. Alumni assistance ranges from 
making advance on-site arrangements to discussing the 
University with prospective students. Providing transporta- 
tion for prospects visiting the campus is another way in which 
alumni can be of service. 

Beardslee says that alumni interested in this program 
must be willing to participate in a "training" program for 
volunteers in which the Admissions Office would advise them 
of certain "do's and don'ts of the business" and keep them in- 
formed of events and programs on campus. A form, to be 
returned to the Alumni Office, is provided for those willing to 
serve as Alumni Admissions Assistants. 


THE CAREER DEVELOPMENT Office, directed by 
Bigler R. Irvin, is enlisting the aid of alumni who will 
volunteer their services to students as Career Advisers. They 
would make themselves available, in their own homes or 
places of business, to talk with students about the nature of 
job and career opportunities in their field or related areas, and 
give advice on career preparation and job-seeking. 

Irvin stresses that Alumni Career Advisers will not be 
asked to find jobs for students. While his office does assist in 
making contacts, it is the individual student's responsibility 
to locate job situations. However, the Career Development 
Office can make this task easier by providing students with 
the best possible counseling. The role of alumni would be to 
utilize their professional expertise and experience to provide 
practical information and advice concerning specific fields 
and the employment market. 

Irvin believes that some alumni are already giving this 
kind of advice independently, but he hopes to increase the 
number of alumni so involved and to formalize the process. 
The plan is to compile a directory listing Alumni Career Ad- 
visers according to geographic areas and career categories. 
This will be available to students who may thus be put in 
touch with alumni volunteers in the student's prospective 

Alumni interested in volunteering their services as 
Career Advisers are asked to fill out the form and return it to 
the Alumni Office.

He Gives to Community 
As Muct) as Any Native 

Reprinted with permission from The Daily Item of Sunbury, January 21 , 1978 

Snyder County Bureau 

William R. Belz '7fi, ai nghi. a driver for the volunteer 

Dauntless Hook and Ladder A mbulance League, checks 

equipment with chief driver Harold Mucker be/ore leaving Jor a call. 



SELINSGROVE — The next time you hear someone com- 
menting about "those damn college kids" in Selinsgrove, you 
might suggest they talk with William R. Betz. 

The Susquehanna University senior is not merely here to 
take; he has much to give to the community. 

Ask Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Martin, Port Trevorton R.D. 
1 . Mrs. Martin gave birth to a son Jan. 2, and the report in 
The Daily Item under the Sunbury Community Hospital 
birth announcements was that a son was born at 6:42 p.m. 

But the baby had already been born when the mother 
reached the hospital in the Dauntless Hook and Ladder Com- 
pany ambulance. Betz, who serves as a volunteer with the am- 
bulance group, delivered him. 

Betz has no roots in the Susquehanna Valley. His home 
is in Mendham, N.J,, a fast-moving borough of 4000 about 40 
miles from New York City. 

Betz is 22 and has been involved in fire and ambulance 
work since he turned 18 and joined the Mendham company, 
also a volunteer unit. 

Volunteer is the magic word as far as Betz, a pre-medical 
student, is concerned. 

"Volunteering is great. I think more people should get 
involved in volunteer work because it ties them to the com- 
munity much more than just a job," he said. 

"And people appreciate it when you get up at three 
o'clock in the morning and it's 10 degrees outside," he added. 

Betz is chairman of the community involvement com- 
mittee of the university's Chapel Council. The group's major 
activity is the visiting of local nursing homes on a weekly 

"We hold parties for them on special occasions," he said, 
"and again it's all volunteer. We get nothing from the college 
for it, but the kids all believe in it, and you get much more out 
of it than money," Betz said. 

Another committee does the same thing in the 
Selinsgrove Center, he said. 

"Some of them (the nursing home residents) might not 
remember your name, but they really appreciate your coming 
in. It brightens up their day," he said. 

As for the delivery of the baby, Betz said, "I was just 
waiting for such an opportunity. I was quite excited about it." 

He hasn't spoken with the parents of the baby, but did 
check back with the hospital to find out the baby was doing all 

Betz was also the driver involved this month when Susan 
K. Host, 1 3, Hummels Wharf, was struck by a school bus on 
Rts. 11-15. 

"I was glad to see that she is going to be okay," he said, 
adding, "I was glad that two doctors who were driving by 
stopped to help out." 

One was Dr. Calvin J. Wolfberg, a Northumberland op- 
tometrist, and the other an out-of-the-area doctor named 
Witt, he said. 

Betz became a member of the local company in 
December 1974 when he was a freshman. He had been a 
member of the first aid squad and fire company in his home 

town since the summer of 1973. 

"I've always been interested in emergency medical care, 
and that's one of my objectives for getting involved in the 
local company, although I'm also doing it because I want to 
be a servant to the community. 

"After living there for 18 years, I thought I owed them 
something," he said, explaining one reason why he joined his 
hometown company. 

But he had other incentives. His older brother first joined 
the company and since then two others have joined, one now 
an officer. 

Before he joined the company. "I would hear the sirens 
go off and see the men out there working, trying to save a life, 
and it really impressed me." 

Betz said the local company officials were "very recep- 
tive" to his joining. "They've been great with explaining the 
equipment to me. It's a very friendly community, and I'm 
going to miss it when I leave." 

"When I come back here from summer vacations it's 
like I'm coming home," he said, adding that he will definitely 
return to Selinsgrove again some day, if not to live, at least to 

He hopes to enter the University of Pennsylvania to get 
his medical schooling. 

While volunteering here, he has been taking numerous 
training courses, including cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, 
child birth, advanced first aid, emergency extrication and 
defensive driving. 

He took some at the Geisinger Medical Center, Dan- 
ville, and some at Susquehanna. 

He lauded the college professors for their understanding 
when he has occasionally missed classes because of emergen- 
cy calls. He said he has helped with some emergencies on 
campus, such as students having seizures, thus avoiding 
having to call someone in.. 

He has scheduled his classes so as to have one or two 
week-day afternoons free for ambulance shifts. While on duty 
in the ambulance lounge, he usually studies. This is evident by 
his grades. A double major in biology and psychology, he 
carries a 4.0 (perfect) grade average in both with a 3.94 
overall average. 

Last September, Betz received the $500 Lindback Foun- 
dation scholarship award during opening convocation 
ceremonies at the university. 

This award is presented annually by vote of the faculty to 
an outstanding student who "because of scholastic attain- 
ment, character, personality and all-around ability gives 
great promise of being a useful and valuable citizen of the 

He is also head resident of Hassinger Hall; secretary- 
treasurer for Psi Chi, the national honor society for psy- 
chology; a member of Tri-Beta, the national honor society for 
biology; a member of the university's blood donor committee; 
a member of the biology club; and student adviser for 

In his "spare time," he eats and sleeps. 

WINTER 1978 


Recycling its the Old Maroons 

RECOGNIZE THEM? The uniforms were worn by Sus- 
quehanna's Marching Band from the early 1950s until the 
new Coldstream Guard-type scarlet and black outfits were 
purchased in 1976. Now the Old Maroons have been refur- 
bished and are worn with pride by the band of Centre de 
Esludios Tecnologicos No. 92 in Mexico City. 

Susquehanna University's love affair with Mexico began 
in 1973 when the Symphonic Band, University Choir, and 
Chamber Orchestra had a highly-successful concert tour 
South of the Border and kicked off the first Festival Inter- 
nacional de Musica at Oaxtepec I Susquehanna Alumnus, 
Summer 1973). Shortly thereafter, James Steffy, head of the 
S.U. Music Department, became music director of the 
festivals, now held every April and June and including the 
Collegiate Choral Festival, the Fiesta Musical Mexicana, 
and the Aztec Marching Band Pageant. The festivals are co- 
sponsored by International Festivals Inc., Performing Arts 
Abroad Inc., the Mexican Department of Education, and the 
Mexican Social Security System. 

While Mexico has a rich heritage of its own music, a 
scarcity of qualiTied music teachers and general economic 
conditions prevent formal school music instruction as it is 
known in the U.S. So, one of the projects of the festivals is to 
take participating groups (some 70 non-professional musical 
organizations from the U.S., Mexico, and other countries 
have been involved) into Mexican schools for concerts. 

In his role as music director, Steffy has coordinated an 
instrument donation program to encourage instrumental 
music instruction in several of the Mexican schools. Sus- 
quehanna University, the University of Michigan, Washing- 

ton State University, and several other donors have given 70 
band instruments (mostly used), two pianos, 40 music stands, 
beginning instruction books and band compositions — and the 
retired orange and maroon S.U. uniforms. Haines Music 
Store of Sunbury has cooperated by contributing used in- 
struments and repairing those donated by others. 

In the process, Steffy has become a close friend of Prof. 
Emilio Tello, principal of No. 92, who recently wrote that his 
band has 60 members, some of whom must share in- 
struments. And: 

"We are the first regularly organized school band in 
Mexico and the education authorities in Mexico have 
applauded this effort and recognize the help ycu have given to 
form this band; surely they will give their help in forming 
bands in other schools. This small band, instructed by two 
professional musicians from Mexico City, has performed in 
25 diverse school and sport events within the schools of the 
city and in other Mexican states. They are receiving many in- 
vitations to perform. 

"The uniforms that Susquehanna University so 
generously sent to us have been altered and even though the 
difference in size of your students and mine was great, a fine 
looking band has resulted. ... I beg you to receive our 
greeting and most affectionate thanks for the noble endeavor 
that has been realized for the welfare of our youth." 

Another band has been formed in the village of Oaxtepec 
and the instrument donation program continues. Steffy 
would like to hear from any who have new or used in- 
struments for the project.

ZU Sports 


The 1977-78 CRUSADER winter sports season, in the second year 
of the new Physical Education Center, was among the most 
successful campaigns in Susquehanna history. The men's basketball 
squad led the way, posting a regular season mark of 15-8, best in 15 
years. The women's basketball team carded its second straight .500 
season at 6-6 and the wrestling squad came within 13 seconds of 
matching that record, finishing at 5-6-1. The combined S.U. varsity 
ledger shows 26 wins. 20 losses, 1 tie, for a victory percentage of .565. 
Addition of the gaudy 13-3 men's J V hoop slate gives a total of 39-23- 
1 (.629). 

« • * 

The first week of the men's basketball season gave little hint of 
what was to follow. After defeating Haverford in the opening round 
of the Crusader Classic, Coach Don Harnum's quintet bowed to Lin- 
coln in the championship contest, finishing as runner-up in its own 
tournament for the second time. Then came three MAC losses, and 
the Crusaders stood 1-4, 0-3 in the conference. 

Then S.U. ripped off eight straight wins, including key con- 
ference road victories at Albright and Lycoming. A hard-fought, 
narrow loss to Scranton ended the streak and another defeat at 
Philadelphia Textile followed. But the Crusaders came back to win 
another five in a row, including three on the road. They had won 1 3 of 
their last 1 5 and appeared to have clinched second place in the M AC 
Northern Division. 

An unexpected loss at home to a resurgent Lycoming team the 
Crusaders had whipped earlier in Williamsport, and another loss to 
Scranton, dropped S.U. into a third-place tie in the conference. The 
league playoffs are yet to be played as this is written. But the 
Crusaders are assured of their best record since the Bill Moore-Clark 
Mosier team of 1962-63 went 20-4. The intervening years have seen 
only two other winning campaigns: 12-1 1 under Harnum in 1969-70 
and 13-12 under Barry Keadle in 1973-74. 

An important element in the Crusaders' success was, of course, 
the play of Captain Mike Scheib '78, discussed in depth elsewhere in 
this magazine. But after three years and over 1000 points, Scheib's 
performance was to be expected. One must look elsewhere to explain 
a victory total that surpassed most expectations. Key factors include 
I) the improvement of center Bruce Bishop '78 (Cranford, N.J.), 
whose performance finally measured up to his 6'8" stature; 2) the ex- 
citing contributions of 5' II" freshman fiash Rodney Brooks 
(Philadelphia) as Scheib's running-mate at guard; 3) the emergence 
as starting forwards of 6'3" freshman Mark Sacco (Chatham, N.J.) 
and 6'1" Charles Ferguson '79 (Philadelphia). 

The Crusaders' strong suit was shooting, as they hit 48 percent 
from the fioor. Although outrebounded by a per-game average of 
38.7 to 37, Susquehanna outscored the opposition 68.3 to 65.6. Coach 
Harnum stressed defense, and the players worked hard and took 
great pride in this aspect of the game. 

Bishop averaged 9 points and 10 rebounds per game and blocked 
35 shots. Brooks is gifted with a sprinter's speed, a high jumper's 
leaping ability, and a marksman's eye. His presence kept opposing 
defenses from concentrating on Scheib. The duo was tough to stop on 
the fast break and the pair often fed each other on a back door lob 
pass play usually reserved for bigger men. Brooks hit 53 percent from 
the field and averaged 13 points. Ferguson, who never played high 
school basketball, averaged over 6 points per game, as did Sacco. 

Brooks. Kruse. and Hildebrand 

They were steady rebounders, along with 6"5" Jim Gladwin '79 
(Bristol, Pa). Other varsity regulars were 5'11" guard Randy 
Westrol '79 (Elizabeth. N.J.) and 6'3" forward Jay Barthelmess '80 

(Doylestown, Pa.). 

* * * 

The women's hoop team, which recently went several years 
without a victory, suffered from "rising expectations." With the top 
six players returning from last year's 5-5 squad, there was hope for a 
winning campaign. But the weather and the schedule combined to 
make it a strange season. At one point three straight games had to be 
postponed because of snow and the Crusaders had to play five con- 
secutive road games. They stumbled to 3-6 and then came back to 
take the last three in fine style to finish at .500. 

The women lost four games by a combined total of 12 points, 
and, with no seniors on the roster (again), they can still say "wait 'til 
next year." The veteran line-up was dented by several newcomers, as 
freshman guards Becky Edmunds (Forty Fort, Pa.) and Judy 
Mapletoft (Chatham, N.J.) and transfer student Mary Cockill "80 
(East Brunswick, N.J.) a 5'l 1" center, saw much action. 

The veterans include forwards and co-captains Sherry Rohm '79 
(Blain, Pa.) and Janeen Kruse '79 (Sparta, N.J.), center Lorinda 
Alexander '79 (Dillsburg, Pa.), and guards Val Metzger '80 (Milton, 
Pa.) and Cathy Mauer '80 (Bethel Park. Pa.). Although records are 
sketchy, it is likely that the women set a school scoring mark in their 

80-30 win over Lycoming. 

• * * 

Although the grapplers of Coach Charlie Kunes failed to end a 
string of losing seasons (now five), their campaign can be termed a 
success. With a very young line-up, the Crusaders managed to equal 
the victory total of the last two years combined and achieve their best 
record since 1972-73. This turn-around can be credited in large part 
to one of the most impressive groups of freshman athletes Sus- 
quehanna has ever had in any sport. Five freshmen earned first-string 
slots and three had winning marks. Most triumphant was 190-lb. Bert 
Szostak (Colonia, N.J.) who had a dual meet mark of 10-1 and was a 

WINTER 1978 


team leader in takedowns, falls, and team points. He could become 
Susquehanna's first MAC wrestling champion, according to Coach 
Kunes. Other victorious yearlings were 1 50-lb. Bill Bryson (Easton. 
Pa.) 9-2. and i 18-lb. Todd Burns (Selinsgrove). 8-4. .Among the up- 
perclassmen, captain Larry Hildebrand "78 (W'hippany. N.J.) was 7- 
3 at 142 pounds and was praised for his leadership by Kunes. and Joel 
Tokarz "80 (Ossining, N.Y.) was 6-3 at 167 pounds. Bryson tied 
Szostak w ilh four falls and was the S.U. leader in near falls and bout 

.A .500 record slipped through the Crusaders' grasp in the llnal 
outing when 158-lb. Rick Hvans'81 (Mechanicsburg. Pa.), ahead on 
points, was pinned with I 3 seconds left, allowing Lebanon Valley to 
gain a 24-24 tie. A winner five times as another outstanding first-) ear 
man. Evans is sure to atone many times over during the next three 
years. Of the five winning wrestlers only Hildebrand will graduate 
and the sport appears to be enjoying a resurgence at Susquehanna. 

« • « 
Men's JV basketball records for previous years are incomplete, 
but it appears that in 1977-78 the club had the best winning percent- 
age in history and tied the record for wins. Coached by Jim Baglin 
"74. the all-freshman team was paced by guard Ray Nardo (Berkeley 
Heights, N.J.). forwards Larry Weil (Colonia, N.J.) and Ed 
Rogovich (Cresskill, N.Y.), and center Bob Sisco (Newton, N.J.).

Susquehanna athletes took to the water this winter as the S.U. 
Swimming Club made its maiden voyage. Led by another outstand- 
ing group of freshmen, notably freestyler Peter Rile(Pottsville, Pa.), 
the Crusader natators made impressive showings in si.x contests with 

full-fledged varsity teams and scored one victory, 49-46 over 
Lycoming The club is coached by Dr. G. Edward Schweikert, assist- 
ant professor of psychology, former .-Ml-.American in the butlerOy at 

the College of Wooster. 

• « • 

A major off-field development on the Crusader sports scene is 
the appointment of Bill Moll as new head football coach, replacing 
Jim Ha/lett '52 who resigned after 12 years at the helm. A football 
assistant last fall. Moll is an instructor in physical education and 
assistant track coach. He came to Susquehanna last year after es- 
tablishing a remarkable record in rebuilding the football programs at 
three Pennsylvania high schools — Selinsgrove, New Freedom 
( Bethlehem, Pa), and Red Land (Lewisberry, Pa.). Moll has taken 
losing high school football teams and produced records and cham- 
pionships in a short time. It would be unfair to both the former coach 
and the new to expect Moll to perform miracles in the tough Middle 
Atlantic Conference. However, Crusader fans cannot help hoping 
thai an infusion of new spirit can end a succession of seven losing 
seasons on the Susquehanna gridiron.

Prognostications for spring; Coach Hazlett's baseball team to 
card Its third straight winning season . . . Eighth consecutive winning 
season (I Ith non-losing) and best S.U. record of the year for Coach 
Buss Carr's golfers . . . Slight improvements for Coaches Bob 
Muirheadand Moll in track (1-9 last year) and Harnum in men's ten- 
nis (2-9) . . . Women's tennis team of Coach Connie Delbaugh to 
have trouble gaining third straight winning season without Ginny 
Davis '77 . . . Coach Rose Ann Neff to enjoy winning season with 
Susquehanna's first official women's Softball team.

Following confirniauon b> ihe Board 
of Directors on May 8. President 
Jonathan Messerli announced that two 
vacant vice presidential posts at Sus- 
quehanna were heing filled from within 
the ranks, one lemporarilv. 

Homer W. Wieder Jr.. vice president 
for development, was named vice presi- 
dent for finance and development effec- 
tive immediately. In addition to his 
other duties he assumed the respon- 

sibilities formerly held b> Kermit R. 
Ritter '60, who resigned his vice 
presidency in January. Dennis D. 
Kieffer '74 was appointed controller 
several months ago. 

James B. Steffy. professor of music, 
became acting vice president for 
academic affairs and acting dean of the 
faculty for one year effective Sept. I . He 
replaces Dr. Wilhelm Reuning. dean 
since 1959. who resigned as of Aug. 31 
and will remain at the University as 
professor of history. 

Dr. Messerli also announced the ap- 
pointments of lv.0 faculty members to 
new administrative positions created to 
assist the offices of the President and the 
dean of the faculty. Dr. Donald D. 
Housley. associate professor of history. 
was named director of faculty and 
curriculum development to work under 
Steffy and Dr. Wallace J. Growney, 
associate professor of mathematical 
science, is director of institutional 
research, responsible to the President. 


A recent survey of 2376 colleges and 
universities conducted by the Modern 
Language Association has found that 
the number of students studying foreign 
languages fell only 1 .4 percent between 
1974 and 1977. Earlier studies showed: 
1970-72. 9 percent fall; 1 972-74. 6.2 per- 
cent fall. 

The conclusion is thus reached that 
overall language enrollments seem to be 
stabilizing, while the big losers continue 
to be Russian and ('erman. 

Among the traditional "big seven" 
languages, Spanish is by far the most 
popular with 376.697 registrations in 
Ihe current survey, up 4 percent. An- 
cient Cireek had 2.'>,843, up 6 percent, 
and Italian had 33.327. up I percent. 
Slight losses were reported for French 
with 246.115 and Latin with 24,403. 
Russian was down 14.6 percent to 27,- 
784 and German down 1 1 percent to 
135,371. In all, there were 933,478 

Both will retain reduced-load teachmg 

In addition. Dr. Messerli announced 
the promotion of his secretary. Mrs. 
Kathleen Ha/lett. to the new post of ad- 
ministrative assistant to the President. 

Dr. Messerli revealed his intention to 
resume the search for a new academic 
vice president and dean in the fall and 
expects to fill the post a year hence. A 
■Search Committee went to work last 
fall after the Reuning resignation an- 
nouncement, but the committee's three 
"finalists" were rejected by the Presi- 
dent, who said, "the outstanding can- 
didate is yet to be found." 

He indicated that "Susquehanna can 
be proud of its ability to tap its own peo- 
ple for future leadership. The quality of 
the faculty and staff allows the Univer- 
sity to build from within." He said that 
the new appointees are "long-time 
residents who have made a commitment 
to the institution and to the Central 
Susquehanna Valley." 


An estimated 7500 persons visited the 
campus during the first Susquehanna 
Valley .Arts Festival cosponsored by the 
University and Boscov's Department 
Store. Mar. 8-25. 

The biggest attraction proved to be 
an appearance by Mel Blanc. "The Man 
of a Thousand Voices." The creator of 
the voices of Bugs Bunny and other 
famous characters, Blanc spoke about 
his career and showed some of his 
favorite cartoons to an SRO audience 
of about 1700. including many children, 
in Weber Chapel Auditorium. 

Canadian Brass, a polished, profes- 
sional quintet, drew an audience of 
about 900 for a concert which was also 
part of the I' 77-78 Artist Series. 

Other events included concerts by the 
.S.LI. Symphonic Band and other stu- 
dent and faculty ensembles, exhibits 
and demonstrations of various arts and 
crafts, and showings of several classic 
films made available through the 
University's Humanities Film Forum 
sponsored by a grant from the National 
Endowment for the Humanities. 

Clyde Lindsley. director of the Cam- 
pus Center, and others on the Universi- 
ty staff are already beginning to make 
plans for a similar festival next spring.

The necessity for the college graduate 
to bear witness to the truth, however dif- 
ficult or unpopular that task may be, 
was stressed in different ways by both 
the Rev. Dr. James F. Gunther in his 
Baccalaureate sermon and by Universi- 
ty President Jonathan Messerli in his 
Commencement address on May 20. 

Dr. Gunther, recognized as a national 
leader among black Lutheran clergy, is 
senior pastor of I'r.insfiguialion Luther- 
an Church in New ^'ork City and a 
member of the Executive Council of the 
Lutheran Church in .\merica. He spoke 
1(1 over 1200 persons at the 10 a.m. Bac- 
t.ilauieate in Weber Chapel .\uditorium. 

Dr. Messerli had an audience of 
about 3000. including 299 seniors, at 3 
p.m. on Seibert Green. It was Sus- 
quehanna's first outdoor graduation 
ceremony since I966and Dr. Messerli's 
first Commencement address since 
assuming the presidency last fall. 

The large crowd in thechapel listened 
attentively to Dr. Gunther's quiet but 
forceful delivery. "The truth," he said, 
"will make you mad. But if you deal 
with the truth, or let it deal with you, the 
truth will set you free." Dr. Gunther 
charged the graduates to "go imo all the 
world to bear witness to the truth and 
make people mad." 

Pastor Gunther stated that "(jod 
loves Ihe World, not the Church." He

Dr. Marjorie Wolfe McCune "43, 
professor of English at her alma mater, 
joins Ihe Board of Directors of the 
Lutheran Theological Seminary al Get- 

said that "the Church has tried to he si 
heavenly-minded it sometimes has been 
no earthh good." We must "learn to see 
truth from different perspectives, to 
recogni/e the image of God in other 
people, rather than try to make other 
people into our own image," he said. 

Other points made by Dr. Gunther 
w ere that people must learn "to love and 
let go" and to love other people, not 

I n an address entitled "The Graduate 
as the New Immigrant," Dr. Messerli 
encouraged the seniors to "use Muir 
reason and assert your freedom." 

Comparing the situation of the 
graduate entering the world of work to 
that of the many immigrants who came 
to .America, he advised the class of 1978 
to resist "total assimilation" and to 
maintain the lifestyle and values of the 
"liberalK educated" in the face of those 
who would "wear you down to the com- 
mon denominator. 

"Even as in the past," Dr. Messerli 
said, "you too may learn that there are 
lies upon which most people prefer to 
agree. You too will be pressed into 
becoming standard, uniform, and 
predictable. You too will be tempted to 
material progress and ever greater com- 

"Refuse to be detached from the 
pulse of life. Today as never before the 
old biblical concept of stewardship 
takes on a trenchant and urgent 
meaning in a world where half of the 
population still goes to bed hungrv. As 
never before there is a need for the ex- 
amined life with its concerns about the 
ecology, denial of human rights, 
bureaucratic control, war, peace, dis- 
ease, genetic experimentation, and the 
verv essence of life itself."

send in this issue, we couldn't resist using the 
photo on the cover. After all. its subject really is 
\\ endy. Michael's guide dog. A blind student 
from Plainfield. N.J.. Michael graduated with 
the B.A. on May 20, After handing him his 
diploma. President Jonathan Messerli an- 
nounced a special award. Cam's Sapleniissiina 
(Wisest Dog), for the animal who also attended 
all Michael's classes for four years. With the 
award went a big blue ribbon. The scene was 
captured on film by Vannucci of Williamsport, 
released over the UPl wire, and subsequently

suggest a number of empty seats, the crowd was estimated as 
near 3000. with several hundred seated on bleachers not visi-

1 20th Year 

PAUL DARE COLEMAN: Native of Sloystown, Pennsylvania,

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, you have served your 
profession and \our country with extraordinary distinction. 

A physicist with the Signal Corps and the Army Air Corps 
throughout World War II and the post-war years, you were

spent a lifetime communicating the beauty of natural and or- 
dinary thmgs through your paintings and your books. Among 
contemporary artists, says Current Biography, you are the un- 
disputed master of preindustrial Americana. 

Beginning your career as an itinerant sign painter, you soon 
chose the sky and clouds as your favorite subjects, which led you 
to flying and the study of meteorology, the writing of fourclassics 
on weather, and becoming the first weatherman on television. 
Recognized as the finest painter of clouds and sky. you are equal- 
ly loved for your many hundreds of covered bridges, barns, tools, 
and other pictures that delight the eye and perpetuate the heritage 
of America and the rural milieti. Louis Nizer calls you the man 
who writes with a brush and paints with a pen. 

You created the first Hall of Atmosphere for the Museum of 
Natural History in New York; you painted large murals for the 
Air and Space Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, the 
Lindbergh Foundation, and others; three dozen books have come 
from your pen. And you are credited with having revived the 
Ringing of the Bells on the Fourth of July on a national scale as 
resolved by an Act of Congress in 1963. Philosopher, humorist, 
philanthropist, and a Great American. Susquehanna honors itself 
in honoring you.

I HE HOUR is near midnight. The place is a fashionable 
cocktail lounge in the heart of Selinsgrove. The room is more 
than LisLiall\ filled for a cold Friday in February. In thecandle 
glow, the shine of the grand piano reflects the drinks and the 
fellowship filling the room. At that piano, arrangements of 
everything from Duke Fllington to Elton John and Billy Joel 
ring out — sung with a poignancy and style that quiets even the 
most urgent cocktail chatter. 

This voice belongs to Michael Townsend '78, a com- 
munications major from Plainfield, N.J. Michael's natural 
abilit) at playing the piano developed at the age of four. At 
that time, he claims, he only "pecked around." He began 
playing seriously once he came to college. Last summer, he 
attended his first formal class in piano, a jazz improvisation 
course under well-known composer and performer George 
Shearing at Chautauqua, N. Y. His experience at the summer 
arts mecca provided Michael with the inspiration to become 
more than a performer. 

.After working with Shearing on various arrangements, 
Michael was approached by Shearing's manager, who asked 
to hear some of Michael's original work. To this point, 
Michael had been strictly an interpreter of other people's 
material. Since then, however, he has written nearly 20 songs 
he hopes to get published. 

The subjects of his songs are very personal experiences. 
.According to Michael, they are most often written about 
dreams or experiences he has had which remain difficult to 
express in spoken words. He feels that musical arranging is 
his strong point, while writing lyrics is a problem. Michael's 
style is unusual in that his lyrics are written first. They need 
not be strictly logical because the music conveys the feeling 
and fits the words that are written. 

His greatest wish is for his music to continue to fulfill his 
personal needs as a form of expression. A real enjoyment is 
derived by sharing his art with friends in the field and 
receiving their honest opinions. Michael believes it is impor- 
tant for a friend to be critical because this criticism proves he 
has truly taken the time to listen carefully to the song. 

The support of many of his friends and professionals was 
evidenced last fall as Michael won third place in the Penn- 
sylvania state finals of the Bob Hope National Talent Search. 
His appearance was sponsored by the University's Program 
Board, an organization which schedules guest artists and 
special events for the student body. Michael has appeared 
many times on the Susquehanna campus as well as at the 
Hotel Governor Snyder in Selinsgrove. 

Noted for his ethnicjokes, Michael does impersonations 
of various minority-group characters which has sometimes 
put him in uncomfortable situations. He feels people are too 
easily offended. We should learn to laugh at our differences, 
he says. Michael even jokes about the handicapped. He feels 
justified in this since he himself is blind. 

Michael claims that the only reason he has accomplished 
anything in life is because he has found humor in his "so- 
called" handicap. His uncanny knack of making people laugh 
and see just how silly they are breaks down the stereotyped 
images of blind people that some individuals hold. Michael is 
perhaps better known on campus for his humor and his out- 
going personality than for his musical talents. 

When an instructor confronted Michael with the fact 
that he had never taught a blind student before, Michael 
reassured him by telling him to "just write bigger on the 
blackboard and talk loud." Not one to take compliments for 
accomplishments he feels are necessary, he replied to a 
professor who was amazed at the way Michael walks around 
campus by asking "What do you want me to do . . . crawl?" 

Michael attended a school for the blind until the fifth 
grade when he decided he needed, as he quotes Warren G. 

Holly M Geise of Reading. Pa . was 
a double major in English and 
Conuminications & Theatre Arts. A 
University Scholar, she took part in 
theatre activities and WQSV and was 
education chair for .4 WS. She served 
an internship in the Public Information 
Office as a senior and is now 
assistant education director at the 
Planned Parenthood Center 
of Reading and Berks County. 

SUMMER 1978 

Harding, "the return to normalcy.'" He felt the students there 
were too complacent with their situations. His ambition to be 
independent is reflected in the fact that he earned the money 
himself to buy Wendy, his guide dog. 

Since enrolling in public school, Michael has always 
wanted to be prepared for everything and is readily willing for 
any new experience. In his music and his life he is in constant 
search of "new veins." in his words. He skis on both snow and 
water, bicycles, tinkers with cars, plays football with his 
friends, and swims and works out at the gym. 

Abandoned as an infant by his natural parents. Michael 
has lived for several years with foster parents Mr. and Mrs. 
Raymond Leavee who. he says, "straightened me out." After 
attending Plaintleld High School for three years. Michael 
spent his senior year at the Wardlaw Country Day School, 
visited by the Susquehanna admissions staff. A classmate, 
business major Tom Dwyer "78, also came to Susquehanna 
from Wardlaw. 

In addition to his guts and determination, fantastic 
memory retention is an important skill which helped Michael 
through his four years at Susquehanna. Almost immediately 
upon his arrival on campus, he had counted and memorized 
the number of steps between all the buildings. Being able to 
remember where things are was a big help in his many hours 
of work as a progressive music disc jockey at the campus 
radio station WQSU and during a summer internship at 
WMLP. a popular commercial station in Milton. Pa. 

Michael utilized a tape recorder or Braille typewriter to 
take notes in class. He was guaranteed a place in classes for 
which he pre-registered. allowing him time to obtain taped 
textbooks from the New Jersey Commission for the Blind, 
which also provided a full scholarship. The respect and 
friendship he earned from other students was evident when he 
received a standing ovation from his classmates at 

With his characteristic good humor, Michael says there 
are only two things being blind has prevented him from doing: 
being an airline pilot and racing in the Indianapolis 500. 
"And."" he says, "considering the number of plane crashes, 
Tm not so sure Td do much worse than some pilots."' 

In the future. Michael hopes to find a job in radio broad- 
casting or in counseling the handicapped. He does not envi- 
sion a professional career in music, although he says he would 
be interested in some nightclub dates or recording sessions if 
the right opportunity came along. 

He likes to tell people that his blindness is just an act. 
■'How else could a guy get a $20,000 scholarship, have his own 
single dorm room and a pet for four years?" He says many 
blind persons are sensitive to use words like "look" and 
"see." But not Michael. And when he tells a girl "you're 
lookin' foxy in that dress," you can bet she turns her head.

SUMMER 1978 


Another Big Day 
For Mike 

IT WAS May I. the annual Enshrinemenl Day al the 
Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. Mass. In attend- 
ance at the basketball mecca were the hardwood elite: new 
inductees and current Hall of Famers including Bob 
Cousy. the game's most famous "little man." and George 
Mikan, the first "big man": lop Division I college coaches 
like Joe Hall of Kentucky and Bill Foster of Duke; former 
politician turned NBA commissioner Larry O'Brien. 
NBC sportscasters Curt Gowdy and Jim Simpson were 
speakers. The news media and their TV crews were well 

And amidst all these nationally-known figures, the 
spotlight turned on Susquehanna's own Mike Scheib '78 
of Mjllersburg. Pa. {Alumnus, Winter 1978) when the 
diminutive. 5'8" guard received the Naismith Award as 
the nation's best senior player under six feet tall. He is the 
only Division HI athlete ever selected for the Naismith, 
which was given at a luncheon in the Hall of Fame 
Buildmg. That evening, Scheib was a guest of honor at the 
tnshrmement Dinner, attended by 800 people in nearby 
Agawam, and was seated ne\t to Cousy on the dais. 

In the photos, below: Mike is interviewed by Curt Gow- 
dy as Gowdy's assistant holds the mike. At right: with Bob 
Cousy at the banquet; with Larry O'Brien and fianked by 
his parents Mr. and Mrs. Paul Scheib; with George

.Susquehanna has produced some fine athletes over the 
years, but few colleges can boast of being represented in 
consecutive years at both the College Football Hall of 
Fame (Gerry Huesken '77, Alumnus. Winter 1977) and 
the Basketball Hall of Fame. — P.B.S. 


SU Zpotis 


"THE QUEEN is dead. Long Live the Queen." 

In college sports, where the athlete's career cannot exceed four 
\ears, no individual can dominate the scene for very long. There are 
always newcomers ready to fill the shoes of the graduated stars, who 
all too soon fade from the fans" memory. 

Such is the case with the Susquehanna women's tennis team. 
When we told you in this space last year about the unusual ac- 
complishments of Ginny Davis "77, who was undefeated in her last 14 
dual matches m the number-one singles position, we did not e.xpect 
someone else to perform a similar feat so soon — and as a freshman no 
lessl Donna Gottshall "81 (Schwenksville, Pa.) took over the first slot 
for Coach Connie Delbaugh this spring and proceeded to win all nine 
of her dual matches. Incredibly, despite meeting some top-notch 
competition, she did not even lose a single set until her eighth outing. 
Only Bucknell's top player extended Gottshall to three sets before 
bowing along with all the rest. 

This gives the Crusader women's tennis team the amazing 
record of not having lost a first singles point in over three years! 
Starting each match ahead 1-0 is a main reason the SU netwomen 
have put together three straight winning seasons, including 6-3 this 
spring, best mark in the 1 1-year history of the sport at Susquehanna. 
Four other freshmen were key players, so Coach Delbaugh seems to 
be developing a perennial powerhouse. 


MVPers Kinkel and Burton 

were a third place finish in the Middle Atlantic Conference Tourna- 
ment and a double win over arch-rivals Bucknell and Gettysburg, two 
of the best golf teams in the East this year. 

In the finale at Juniata, neither of the top two SU players, Mc- 
fatridgeor Mark Bostic"78{New Freedom, Pa.), counted among the 
Crusaders" best five scores. A disappointing way for them to end their 
careers, but a sign of future strength for the squad, since the five 
players whose scores produced the victory are all returning. 

The women's Softball team can also boast of its best campaign in 
history. Granted, a one-year history is not a long one, but it is none- 
theless a remarkable achievement to turn in a 9-3 card in your first 
venture into official intercollegiate competition. Coach Rose Ann 
Neff also fielded a young team, and the Crusader diamondgirls 
should be strong again next year. 

Speaking of tremendous performances by freshmen. Sus- 
quehanna had two yearling pitchers who really zipped the ball. Sue 
Bowman "81 (Mendham, N.J.) went 6-2, Charlotte Bartholomew '81 
(Milton, Pa.) was 2-1. and the pair com.bined for a 1.55 ERA. The 
Crusaders hit .291 as a team and outscored the opposition 1 19-58. 

In addition to having excellent pitching, hard hitting, and tight 
defense, the SU women were distinguished by their tobacco-chewing. 
Top-chew Cathy Mauer '80 (Bethel Park. Pa.) led the team in hitting 
at .410 and did a fine job covering second base. 

There's an old adage in the journalism trade that it's not news 
when dog bites man. but it is news when man bites dog. Similarly, the 
Susquehanna golf team did not get any headlines this spring when it 
("ho-hum" ) produced a sparkling 1 2-2 record to set a team record for 
victories and score its eighth straight winning season. As far as 
publicity is concerned. Coach "Buss" Carr is the victim of his own 
success. We expect his teams to win and are not surprised when they 

Mike McFatridge (Glen Rock, Pa.) '78, who paced the team in 
three of his four years, had the best average at 79.1. Although the 
golfers did not equal previous years for near-par individual rounds, 
the squad always had at least five members right around the 80 mark 
and averaged 397 (five-man total) for the season. The high points 

Although enjoying their third straight winning season. Coach 
Jim Hazlett and his Orange and Maroon baseball team will be spend- 
ing some time this summer trying to forget the season-ending ECAC 
Regional Tournament. The Crusaders went into the event, which 
they hosted on University Field, seeded first with a 16-9 record and 
carrying a .303 team batting average. The seven days of rain which 
preceded the tourney must have waterlogged the SU bats. The 
Crusaders could manage only three runs on nine hits in 64 at-bats 
(.141) in losses to Mansfield State and Bloomsburg State. 

During the regular season, the 1978 Crusader nine had the best 
batting average and the best ERA of any Hazlett has coached. 
However, occasional fielding lapses resulted in nearly 50 unearned 
runs for the opponents. Ironically, thedefense was at its best when the 
bats went cold, making only one error in the two ECAC tournament 
defeats. Paul Johnson '78 (Ellington, Conn.) led the mound corps 
with a 4-1 mark and 1.69 ERA. Second baseman MikeCosgrove'79 
(Saundertown, R.I.) was top hitter at .393, while outfielder Paul 
Mueller '78 (Basking Ridge. N.J.) came in at .355. 

Coach Don Harnum found evidenceof progress in the 3-8 men's 
tennis campaign. "We won only two games last year with seniors; this 
year we won three with a young team," he notes. One of several 
freshmen on the roster, Robb Larson (Harrisburg. Pa.) held the 
number-one singles slot. Second man Pete Burton "78 (Chatham. 
N.J.), named squad MVP, may be the first Susquehannan to win 
MVP trophies in both football and tennis in the same year. 

Coach Bob Muirhead began the track and field campaign with 
no hurdlers. Although some were drafted as the season progressed, 

SUMMER 1978 


the Crusaders remained weak in the hurdles and in the sprints. 
However, the Crusaders still managed to remain competitive in every 
meet except the Gettysburg encounter. Top point-getters were Mark 
Rollick '78 (McAdoo. Pa.) with 80 dual meet points in the shot put 
and discus and Dean Giopulos '81 (Wellsville, N.Y.) with 40 in the 

The men's tennis team has not had a winning season since 1967, 
the track and field squad not since 1972. 

All in all. it was a highly successful spring season for the Orange 
and Maroon, withone undefeated individual and four winning teams. 

The combined record of the six Susquehanna spring squads was 48- 
.'6-2 for a winning percentage of .571. 

In what is believed to be an unprecedented step, the Athletic 
Department has honored Mike Scheib. 1978 Naisniith Award 
winner, by retiring his basketball jersey (number 20). At the annual 
spring sports banquet Scheib received the 1978 Blair Heaton 
Memorial .Award. Jo Ann Kinkel '78 (Red Lion, Pa.) was presented 
with the .AWS Most Valuable Senior Woman .Athlete .Award. She 
earned a total of six letters in field hockey and women's tennis and 
captained both teams as a senior.

••'i.'jiJ' ' ■: 





Susquehanna Unlversit) students in 
eight University Avenue houses are 
conducting special projects which aim 
to serve the community and the school 
during the upcoming year. 

The Special Interest program in 
University Avenue houses, coordinated 
by Carol A, Luthman, director of 
residence affairs at Susquehanna, is 
now in its fourth year. University of- 
ficials believe this is a way to maximize 
the educational potential of the 
residence environment by encouraging 
students to develop self-motivated lear- 
ning experiences and service projects. 

Interested students organize their 
group and initiate and develop their own 
program or project, which is submitted 
for evaluation by a committee. Groups 
whose proposals are approved are 
assigned a University Avenue house 
which serves both as residence for the 


Certificate programs of courses in 
Mental Health Education and Mental 
Retardation are offered again this year 
by Susquehanna University's Adult 
Evening Program in cooperation with 
the Mental Health/Mental Retarda- 
tion offices of Northumberland, Co- 
lumbia, Montour, Union, and Snyder 

The two programs each consist of a 
three-course sequence and awarding of 
a Certificate upon successful comple- 
tion. Course credits are also applicable 
to other degree programs offered at 

The Certificate Programs are de- 
signed for persons in all walks of life but 
are of special interest and value to 
clergymen, school teachers, nurses, 
counselors, social workers, and the like. 
The faculty includes Susquehanna 
professors and personnel from The 
Geisinger Medical Center, the Selins- 
grove and Laurelton Centers, and the 
Central Susquehanna Intermediate 


Responding to a renewed local in- 
terest in Crusader football, the Sus- 
quehanna University Quarterback Club 
was reactivated this fall. 

With a smoker in the Faculty Lounge 
scheduled to kick off the season on Sept. 
1 2, the group plans to meet every Mon- 
day at noon to view films of the previous 
Saturday's game and hear from Head 
Coach Bill Moll and his staff. All 
buffs — male and female — are welcome 
to join.

Projects for this year include a Big 
Brothers program, working with the 
local group home for the retarded, 
assisting the Snyder County Day Care 
Center, tutoring at the Selinsgrove 
Middle School, aiding local senior 
citizens, and outreach and educational 
programs in French and music. 


Susquehanna University plays a vital 
role in the economic climate of the Cen- 
tral Susquehanna Valley. The Univer- 
sity's annual operating budget alone 
now exceeds $7.5 million, and 80 per- 
cent of this is spent in the local area. 

The SU payroll for 250 employees is 
almost $3.5 million, and it is calculated 
that over 75 percent of it is spent locally. 
Susquehanna's 1400 students spend an 
average of $600 each per year for a total 
of $X40,000 in the region above and 
beyond their college expenses. 

During the year the University is 
responsible for attracting over 20,000 
visitors to the region. Many of these 
visitors eat in local restaurants, 
patronize local motels, and spend time 
shopping in area stores. While the 
dollars which fiow into the local 
economy from this source are difficult 
to calculate, there is no question that 
they are significant. 

During this past summer alone, over 
10,000 visitors came to Susquehanna 
and used the campus's extensive con- 
vention and meeting facilities. 

Susquehanna's Department of Music 
has announced these audition dates for 
the current year: 

Nov. 18, 1978; Dec. 16, 1978; Jan. 20, 
1979; Feb. 17, 1979; Mar. 17, 1979; 
Apr. 17, 1979. 

All applicants planning to enroll in 
Bachelor of Music (Applied Music, 
Church Music, Music Education) 
degree programs are required to audi- 
tion with the Department faculty. 

Application materials and financial 
aid information may be secured by 
writing or calling the Office of Ad- 
missions, Susquehanna University,

In its fourth season, Susquehanna 
University Summer Theatre presented 
two plays in July: "Frankenstein" by 
Tim Kelly and ".Seascape" by Edward 
.Albee. Both were well received by local 
audiences during the two-week season. 

On one Friday evening, the troupe 
offered the University's first dinner- 
theatre presentation, complete with 
bountiful buffet, in the Campus Center. 
Other performances were given in Ben- 
jamin Apple Theatre. 

The plays were produced under the 
supervision of Michael S. Corriston, in- 
structor in communications and theatre 
arts at Susquehanna. The summer com- 
pany included college students in 
Summer Theatre Practicum, a credit- 
course offering of the SU Summer Ses- 
sion. This summer tryouts were opened 
to the community for the first time, and 
the casts included several students from 
Selinsgrove Area High School. 

Based on Mary Shelley's classic tale 
of the brilliant young scientist who 
creates a monster, Kelly's stage version 
of "Frankenstein" is considered among 
the truest adaptations of the original 

Directed by Corriston, the cast in- 
cluded Scott Zimmer "80 of Chap- 
paqua, N.Y., as Victor Frankenstein; 
Janet Heaton '78 of Selinsgrove as Frau 
Frankenstein; Tim Burns '81 of 
Selinsgrove as The Creature; and local 
high school students Corinne Foor, 
daughter of SU .Alumni Office 
secretary Ethel, and Betsy Mitchell, 
daughter of the publishers of The 
Selinsgrove Times-Tribune, as 
Elizabeth and Justine. 

Albee's "Seascape" makes some 
provocative commentary on modern 
life through the vehicle of an encounter 
at the beach between a middle-aged 
couple and two humanoid sea lizards 
who are contemplating moving out of 
the water to live on land. 

Directed by Don Mann '78 of River 
Edge, N.J., the cast included Miss 
Heaton and Clair Freeman '79 of Pine 
Grove, Pa., as the human couple and 
Miss Foor and high school student John 
Tomaschik as the lizards. 

As usual, the campus remained a 
busy place during the summer months 
w ith many other activities in addition to 
the theatre productions. 

Outside groups renting the facilities 
included the North American 
Vegetarian Society. Members came 
from throughout the country for their 
annual gathering which changes loca- 
tion each year. The vegetarians were the 
subject of a feature article in The New 
York Times under a Selinsgrove 

In addition to the Summer Session, 
other University-sponsored programs 
included a Seminar on Facing Ethical

school teachers by SU faculty members 
Dr. Richard Kamber and Ronald 
Dotterer. This program, which earned 
state certification credits for par- 
ticipants through the Central Sus- 
quehanna Intermediate Unit, was 
offered free of charge under a $43,000 
grant to the University from the 
National Endowment for the 

The NFH grant is funding a two-year 
pilot project, initiated in the fall of 1977, 
entitled "The Film: A Vehicle for 
Strengthening and Integrating Instruc- 
tion in the Humanities." The project in- 
cludes purchase of a permanent library 
of some 60 major classic films, a weekly 
movie series, a yearly symposium on 
academic uses of film, and development 
of special courses utilizing films. 

.Among the various other groups on 
campus this summer were six high 
school band camps, football and 
basketball camps, the Central Penn 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in 
America, the Susquehanna Valley 
Licensed Practical Nurses, the 
American Heart Association, the 
Teenage Republicans of Pennsylvania, 
the Baptist Men of Pen.sylvania and 
Delaware, and Camp Camelot with its 
weight-reducing program, described in 
a separate article in this magazine. 


The Women's Auxiliary of Sus- 
quehanna University has presented a 
gift of $4.W to the SU Physics Depart- 
ment for the purchase of a new 
microcomputer for use in the Digital 
Electronics and Microcomputers 

The microcomputer is a small elec- 
tronic computer, about the size of a por- 
table typewriter, that can perform many 
of the functions of the larger general 
purpose computers in use today. It can 
be programmed for demonstration of 
digital computer fundamentals and is 
suited for control of many processes 

According to the Physics Depart- 
ment, the microcomputer will make a 
significant contribution to computer- 
electronics instruction at Susquehanna.

The head of 
Department of 
f^usic talks about 
"Sculpture In 
Context" . . . 



ONE MORNING last April I stepped out of Weber 
Chapel to collect my mail at the Campus Center. I 
stopped short on the pavement when I saw against the 
dark green pine foliage a large and unfamiliar object 
the color of Mars. It had not been there, I knew, the 
previous morning, yet it looked as if it had been there 
forever; 1 had never seen it before, yet it looked 

Thus began my acquaintance with the conceptions 
of sculptors Saunders Schultz and William Conrad 
Severson, for the University was the site of an exhibit of 
models of other works by them. I met Severson and 
listened to him during a visit he made to the campus and 
to his own exhibit. 

None of the talk and none of the models had the 
impact of that first transfixing vision, but I saw and 
learned much from both. The Schultz-Severson studio 
in Chesterfield, Missouri, is called Scopia. I thought 
the name interesting, because the Greek suffix — 

scope — is used to signify an instrument for seeing, and 
we use the verb to see as a metaphor for understanding, 
as in "See what I mean?" 

I was to learn to see what they meant, for most of 
their sculptures are tactile representations of things 
that exist but are not ordinarily noticed by the naked 

The sculpture that had arrested me that morning, 
for example, is called Intersperse. It was conceived and 
executed in 1976 as a symbol of Burlington Mills, and 
of course it is microscopic weaving done in iron, on an 
enormous scale. Intersperse was on the campus only a 
few days when someone inscribed a graffito on it. 

Synergism (1976) is a complex polished stainless 
steel cube, two stories high standing on one of its cor- 
ners in the Mercantile Center, St. Louis. Missouri. The 
word synergism refers to the combined action of several 
different entities, and the mirrored surfaces of the 
sculpture 5>7!f/-g«»! pick up the multifarious activities 


going on around it. It could as well symbolize Scopia, 
which philosophizes that art should be a part of man's 
environment, rather than apart from it. Severson and 
Schultz create synergistic art. 

Computer Connectors (1973), polychrome Cor- 
Ten steel, 48 feet tall, and Mhrators (1973), blue mirror 
and stainless steel, both for Blue Cross Blue Shield, 
Chapel Hill, North Carolina, symbolize the triple func- 
tion of health insurance and the subtle relationships 
between them. I thought the works abstractly, rather 
than symbolically, successful. 

Force Field (1971), a light sculpture of stainless 
steel and acrylic for Ralston Purina World Head- 
quarters, St. Louis, Missouri, freely conceptualizes the 
X-ray defraction of a protein molecule. 

Severson and Schultz have conceived dozens of 
other monumental pieces to be both symbolic and 
original, familiar but fresh, esthetic but sociological, 
subtle but communicative, independent works of art

but architecturally integrated. Their work is an aspect 
of the radical conversions that must occur in the ways 
of the world if humankind is to survive. 

Many people, it seems to me, spend most of their 
lives in a state of unquestioning somnambulism, 
looking without perceiving, hearing without listening, 
touching without feeling, smelltasting without savour- 
ing, knowing without understanding, and existing 
without living. 

They therefore deprive themselves of huge chunks 
of the very stuff of life, for perception and reaction 
define and qualify life. Merely being here is not enough. 

I think I have heard it said that the average person 
uses only about a tenth of his potential conscious brain- 
power. (I have occasionally functioned with an even 
lower percentage, and so have you.) There are many 
ways to substantiate this probability for yourself, in 
case you doubt its validity. 

Think, for example, about things you notice or 
don't notice. You probably recall that spectacular kid- 
napping out west of a schoolbus full of kids. The police 
were able to find the criminals because the bus driver 
had memorized their license-plate number without 
realizing it — hypnotism dredged it out of his sub- 
conscious, where he had stored what amounted to a 
complete psychic videotape of what must have been the 
most shattering event of his life. 

What were you doing when you heard that 
Kennedy had been killed? You probably still remember 
clearly all the circumstances of that moment, or of any 
such moment that is of great significance in your life. 

Isn't it too bad that it takes a psychological shock 
to make most of us use all of our perceptions instead of 
just a paltry fraction of them? I think that if I had to 
choose between a long life of not noticing anything 
much, and a short one full of increasingly finer percep- 
tions, I should opt for the latter. 

Life isn't after all, just time: it is noticing things, it 
is perceiving, listening, feeling, savouring. Cogito. ergo 
sum. but a lot of people manage to exist without giving 
much thought to the phenomenon of living. It is 
probably a good thing, now and then, to notice that 
you're alive. Then ask yourself how you can be sure. 

Life is curiosity. Teaching is the inculcation of 
curiosity. Learning is the pursuit of curiosity. Death is 
the termination of curiosity. Tabby may be dead, but at 
least she is satisfied. That's more than can be said for 
many incurious people. 

All generalities are false, of course, and there is 
more to life than merely curiosity: there is also, for ex- 
ample, imagination, which is another level of con- 
sciousness, another sort of reality. Curiosity begets

knowledge, and imagination begets creativity; and the 
humbling experience of exercising knowledge and 
creativity begets wisdom and sensitivity. Knowledge is 
to creativity as science is to art or as discovery is to in- 
vention, and all of them should be synergistic. Instead, 
they are today compartmented, and their mutual isola- 
tion is destroying them. Schultz and Severson attempt 
in their work to break down the walls. 

The world was formerly so full of a number of 
things that we were all supposed to be happy as kings. 
Now it is even more nearly full, and we ought, I sup- 
pose, to be as happy as emperors or gods or whatever 
comes next in the heirarchy. However, we are not hap- 
py, thus proving Puritan assertion that worldly things 
do not bring joy. 

The things newly filling the world are of at least 
two main sorts. One sort consists of man-made 
uglifications: telephone and electric poles, tarmac 
parking lots, atomic and industrial waste, billboards, 
disposable but indestructible cans and bottles, shop- 
ping centers, perpetual noise, polluted environments, 
and comprehensive rubbish. 

The worst thing about all these things is that most 
people seem not to object to them or even to notice 
them, accepting them as ineluctable by-products of 
progress. To the extent that the mess is not noticed, it 
participates in clouding our perceptions and dimming 
our sensitivities. Such things are the subject-matter of 
contemporary non-art (the famous soup can) and anti- 
architecture (the temporary buildings put up by any 
franchise firm). 

You can become accustomed to almost anything. 
If you sit long enough in a garbage heap, you will no 
longer notice the stench. It is still there, of course, but 
you no longer notice it. Since awareness is a quality 
defining life, we have died to the extent that our need 
for self-preservation has led to our switching off our 

At the same time as rubbish is shrinking our world 
and blunting our perceptions, however, other forces are 
expanding both our horizon and our consciousness. We 
have escaped the earth and taken our first steps upon a 
non-terrestrial body; we have created our own satellites 
and hung them in the sky; we have hurled spacecraft to 
other planets, we have looked in upon fiery galactic 
births, discovered solar systems like our own, and ex- 
humed the imploded carcasses of perished stars. Space 
is curved, time is kinky, and everything is relative. 

Thus we probe immensity, but we also pierce the 
mysteries of smallness: we can listen to the pounding 
hoofbeats of a fiy; we can expand a drop of water into 
an ocean and gaze godlike upon its teeming civiliza- 


lions of microbial monsters; and we can resolve the 
very building-blocks of matter into miniature nuclear 

We have made microcosms and macrocosms alike 
into commensurable handsful, comfortably grasping 
and examining what had formerly been inconceivable 
on account of either its hugeness or its tininess. Such 
things are the subject-matter of Scopia: Severson and 
Schultz extract their ideas from microscopes, tele- 
scopes, and spectroscopes, and become themselves, 
scopes, or scopia — to attach a Latin plural to a Greek 
root. Nevertheless, the laboratory is surrounded by 
ubiquitous rubbish and grafitti, and the observatory 
can no longer pierce the inescapable pollution that 
permeates our atmosphere; and what is drowning the 
laboratory and observatory is drowning the house, fac- 
tory, hospital and church as well. If we destroy our 
earth, then our contemplation of galaxies and 
molecules will be merely futile and tragic. 

Scientific and cultural education private and 
public, religious and secular, commercial and ideal- 
istic, must inculcate in young and old, via printing and 
broadcasting, in homes and factories, a new alert 
perceptiveness of the manifold new symbolism of our 
modern world, and a new ethical imperative to react 

We must first notice the obvious symbols of rub- 
bish and the more subtle ones of astronomical and 
molecular galaxies; the eyes of our understanding must 
be opened. Then we must react decisively to the sym- 
bols: the rubbish must arouse our effective indignation, 
and the galaxies must awaken our curiosity and our im- 

Waste must become unthinkable, and selfish ex- 
pediency immoral. Ugliness must become intolerable, 
and dullness unacceptable. Conversely, our whole en- 
vironment must unanimously and synergistically func- 
tion to sharpen all of our perceptions, arouse our 
curiosity, and fire our imagination, so that factories 
can participate as readily as art galleries in enhancing 
the quality of our life. 

The work of Scopia is particularly significant at 
the moment because it is unusual and beautiful; its kind 
of communicativeness must spread. The rubbish in our 
world today is symbolically significant because it is 
common and ugly; it must be transformed. Today's 
reality consists of both, and is a bit difficult to face. We 
can continue to evade the reality of beauty and ugliness, 
however, only at the price of extinguishing the esthetic 
sensitivities that define humanity and civilization, and 
acquiescing in the atrophy of our capacities to perceive, 
listen, feel, savour, understand, and live.

The Case For the Greeks 

by J. L. MILLER 

Some people ihink of fraternities and sororities only in terms 
oj wild parties. Homecoming parade floats, raccoon coats. 
mischief and sing-alongs. But there is another side to the 
Greek organizations at Susquehanna. Fraternities and 
sororities are involved in many constructive activities in- 
cluding service projects which benefit both the campus and 
the surrounding community. 

President Jonathan Messerli acknowledged this "social 
consiousness" aspect of the Greek organizations last spring 
when he presented the first annual Rozenberg Tent ^'atchers 
A ward for campus and community service to Phi Sigma Kap- 
pa. That house became Dr. Messerli' s inspiration for creating 
the award when the brothers took turns watching the Univer- 
sity's tent throughout the night prior to the S. U. president's 
Inauguration. .4 wind storm had threatened to blow down the 
large canvas structure needed for the next day's activities. 
(The award is named in honor of Dr. Henry W. Rozenberg 
hc'7i of Jersey Shore. Pa., an emeritus member of the S. V. 
Board of Directors. A retired healing engineer. Rozenberg 
designed the University's power plant and has advised and 
assisted Susquehanna on engineering problems and other 
matters. ) 

As an example of the constructive image that Greek 
organizations are projecting, the Alumnus presents a state- 
ment on the benefits of fraternity and sorority membership 
prepared by J. L. Miller '78 of Bechtelsville, Pa. A former 
president of Phi Sigma Kappa and a communications and 
theatre arts major, Miller prepared a tape-recorded radio 
program which was used to present the case for the Greek 
organizations to freshmen during orientation last fall. These 
remarks are based on that tape. — P.B.S. 

WITHOUT EXCEPTION, all students have some en- 
counter with the social fraternities and sororities in their four 
years of life at Susquehanna. It may come through personal 
commitment, through fellow students, or through the 
"bothersome pranks and buffoonery" around campus, to 
quote one Independent's opinion. Greek life is prospering, 
membership is growing, and the reasons for this upswing are 
best explained by the people associated with these organiza- 

Dean Edward Malloy and Dean Dorothy Anderson are 
the advisers to the Interfraternity Council and the 
Panhellenic Council, respectively. Their thoughts on Greek 
life coincide with the opinions of the Greeks themselves. Serv- 
ice to the campus, scholarship, and perhaps most important- 

ly, as Dean Malloy put it, "the kind of things that are needed 
to get along in life," are currently of primary importance to 
fraternities and sororities. 

As the largest organized group on campus, the frater- 
nities and sororities offer the possibility of a "unique ex- 
perience," as one Greek declared. Participation benefits the 
individual socially, academically, and personally, while 
providing a feeling of belonging. Reflecting upon their 
freshman year, many students remember themselves exactly 
as Dean Malloy describes the incoming frosh: "pretty well 
bewildered." Possibly on their own for the first time, unsure 
of what faces them, scared: this is the plight of many new 
students. Association with a Greek organization gives each 
student "a place to latch onto," says Dean Malloy. The af- 
filiation provides a feeling that people are interested in them 
as individuals, that they can relax, that someone will be there 
to try and help with problems. These and many other aids can 
prove to be the beginning of a lifetime bond. 

The Greek's individuality is not lost because there is no 
set mold of a fraternity man or sorority woman which is used 
to measure eligibility. In the words of several Greeks, there is 


a "feeling of belonging . . . warmth, and sense of well-being 
... a worthwhile experience." 

In joining a fraternity or sorority, students find 
themselves meeting different kinds of people with relatively 
the same interests. Upon this meeting, the individuality of a 
student is not lost, but character is shaped and defined. 
Herein lies the greatest asset to membership, as the individual 
learns a great deal outside the classroom. Both Dean M alloy 
and Dean Anderson made the point that the Greek 
organizations help to "round out the student." 

Two decades ago fraternities and sororities were looked 
upon as a vital part of education, taking in "raw kids" and 
turning out "ladies and gentlemen." Greek organizations had 
a "finishing" or "polishing" effect on the individual's out- 
look. This process is not as structured today, but membership 
in an organization, or "mini-society" as one sorority member 
put it, warns the students that "life is not all that easy." 
Valuable experience is gained in encountering differing ideals 
and values, dealing with the problems they present, and 
solving the differences in opinion within the organization. 

Of course, there are other organizations on campus in 
which leadership, responsibilities, and other facets of learning 
such as those mentioned are encountered. But "the close knit 
relationships," the brotherhood and sisterhood, the common 
bond existing within each organization adds to the fullness of 
the social Greek experience. 

The Greek organizations at Susquehanna are revitaliz- 
ing themselves in the late 1970s. At one time close to 90 per- 
cent of the students at S.U. were members of fraternities or 

sororities. With continually increasing enrollment and the 
"anti-Greek" sentiment of the turbulent mid '60s and early 
'70s, percentages dropped to below 20. Today the figures are 
on the rise, nearing 40 percent. Today the Greeks "underrate 
themselves," according to Dean Malloy, as they have the 
ability to be a "real force on campus." This was evidenced by 
the first annual all-campus Spring Weekend Tent Party con- 
ducted by the Greeks on May 5. Proceeds went to United 
Cerebal Palsy. 

Those who view fraternities and sororities as purely 
social organizations are ignoring the many service projects 
both on campus and in the community. One fraternity lists 
nearly 30 service projects engaged in during the 1977-78 
academic year. 

Typical Greek service projects include hosting parties 
for retarded children on Christmas and Easter, volunteer 
work at the Selinsgrove Center, participating in the Big 
Brother Program, tutoring slow learning and "court 
ordered" children, participating in the CROP walk against 
hunger, running in the Harrisburg Marathon to raise money 
for United Way and in the Sunbury Six Mile Road Race for 
Cerebral Palsy, playing volleyball to benefit the American 
Cancer Society, assisting with snow removal on the campus, 
serving as tour guides for the Admissions Office and as ushers 
at University church services, assisting with the campus 
Spring Clean-up, doing their own house renovations, selling 
raffie tickets to benefit Cerebral Palsy, donating money to the 
Heart Fund, working and giving at the campus Blood Drive, 
and serving as scorers and timers at varsity track meets. 

The busy Greek schedule also includes fund-raising ef- 
forts in support of their own social activities. For example, 
the Interfraternity Council assists the Public Information Of- 
fice with publication of the University's football program. 
The IFC solicits advertising and handles program sales and 
receives the profits. 

Of course there is always scholarship, academics, 
"booking." Fraternities and sororities vie for scholarship 
trophies awarded annually at Opening Convocation. 
Membership in a Greek organization can improve study 
skills, especially for freshmen who may find the transition 
from high school difficult. A major asset in fraternities and 
sororities is the diversity of the fields of study represented. 
Guidance is readily available from Greeks, be it assistance 
with actual assignments or developing proper study habits. 

One particular member of a fraternity noted his efficien- 
cy had increased upon joining his brotherhood. His fraternal 
duties forced him to budget his time more strictly and the end 
result was better performance and higher grades. Dean 
Malloy describes the educational contribution of Greek 
organizations as "education in an informal setting" where 
constructive criticism is given but no grades are pending. 

Joining a Greek organization is not for everyone. Many 
students prefer to "go it alone." But fraternities and sororities 
can provide academic, social, and personal benefits for 
members while also making valuable contributions to the 
campus and community. 

SUMMER 1978 


The New Village West 

1 1 was already lale in August, but the foundations and utility lines were 

ready when the first section was pulled up the hill, lifted off its trailer. 

and juggled into position. Then came the ne.vl section, and the next. Each 

of the three units of Village West consists of two modular units with a central 

hallway constructed on site. Each includes six double bedrooms, a kitchenette. 

living room, and community bath. Supplied by Glenwood Housing Inc . they reduce 

substantially the need for "tripling" in overcrowded dormitories. The lolal 

cost — about $150,000 including site preparation, utilities, and furnishings — 

is financed by rental monies normally charged for rooms. The new V'dlage 

West, due open this year, is yet another housing alternative for Susquehanna 

students (see On Our Cover, page i. for additional information). 


Camelot at Susquehanna 


Mrs. Mitchell is editor and publisher of The Selinsgrove Tinies-Trihune. in 
which this article appeared on July 27, 1978. under the heading "Diet 
Camps. Town Both Benefit by SU Location." Reprinted with permission. 

THEY'RE GAINING everything but weight at Camelot this 

Susquehanna University proved so successful as a base 
for a national girls" diet camp last year that it was selected, 
from among hundreds of available colleges and universities, 
for the first Camp Camelot for Boys. And owners of the chain 
have already made reservations for the summer of '79, when 
an even larger program is e.\pected. 

There are about 120 campers, ranging in age from 10 to 
over 21, on the local campus for the seven-week program. 
Based on past performances, they will be going home in mid- 
August, with about two tons of local purchases to replace the 
4000 pounds they will be leaving behind. 

Impossible? Not at all, according to Dr. Morton B. 
Glenn, the internationally-known nutrition authority whose 
widely-publicized diets are a key factor in the program. Girls 
lose an average of 30 pounds; boys (who get I 500 calories a 
day, compared to the girls' 1200) report an even greater loss, 
since their e.xercise program is more intense. 

The two camps at Susquehanna (the boys and girls live 
on opposite ends of the campus and conduct their programs 
separately, for the most part) are part of a chain owned and 
operated by Thelma and Joseph Hurwitz, veteran camp 
directors. Other Camelots (for girls) are at Southampton 
College on Long Island, Fort Lewis College in Durango, 
Colorado; Lake Superior State College in Saulte Ste. Marie, 
Michigan; the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, 
and Whittier College in California, where a second boys' unit 
will be operated next year, modeled after the Susquehanna 

Joe Hurwitz, who visited the Susquehanna camp, along 
with Dr. Glenn, last week, admits that he and his wife did a lot 
of studying before settling on Selinsgrove, but they have never 
regretted their decision. Of all their camps, they hold it up as a 
model when they are interviewed by national magazines and 
television networks. 

Proof of the success of the camp is the fact that they are 
getting "repeaters" — young women who return, not to lose 
weight, but because they've had so much fun in previous 
years. What traditional camp, the directors point out, can 
offer a full range of land and water sports — plus saunas, con- 
certs, theater, stock car races, golfing, amusement parks, 
caves, a full range of stores, and the popular Amish country 
within easy reach of comfortable fireproof dormitories, com- 
plete with security guards? 

A handful of the campers with an interest in dramatics 
participated in the Susquehanna Summer Theatre this year, 
ushering, painting scenery and learning the technical phase of 

the business. Others have found pleasure in local churches or 
the S.U. Library and Music buildings. Camelot supplies (and 
encourages the use of) bicycles; the college provides the swim- 
ming pool, tennis and basketball courts as well as the dance 
and weight rooms, archery range, golf driving range and 
other indoor facilities for inclement weather. 

Surprisingly enough, few of the Camelot campers come 
from the Middle Atlantic states, There are Californians,Tex- 
ans. New Englanders, midwesterners and campers from 
several foreign countries, all having fun while getting fit. 
Institutional food is usually a subject for complaint, but 
everyone — from the vastly overweight to the slim counselors 
— seems to enjoy the Camelot meals. 

The secret, according to the staff, is to keep the campers 
so busy they don't have time to think about being hungry. The 
combination of lots of exercise and high-protein, low-calorie 
food guarantees drastic weight loss. 

The versatility of programs is part of the appeal of a mul- 
timillion dollar campus. The only requirements are pre- 
breakfast calisthenics and nutrition sessions, both of which 
are valuable aids in making weight loss permanent. For the 
girls, there is also guidance in poise, grooming, posture and 
dressing to bolster self-esteem. 

Dr. Glenn visits all of the Camelot camps each summer, 
consulting individually with each camper on his or her par- 
ticular problems. There is a resident nutritionist on each 
camp staff. Weighing once a week and measuring every two 
weeks is anticipated with enthusiasm, since progress is in- 

Camelot has made good use of local personnel, 
providing summer jobs for teachers and students. Susquehan- 
na, of course, welcomes the leasing of its facilities at a time 
when they are not generally being used. Motels and 
restaurants are keenly aware of the impact of the camp, which 
attracts large numbers of visitors. 

The Hurwitzes are particularly pleased that there is 
room for expansion at Susquehanna. Their program, 
originally designed for teenagers, is attracting more and more 
young women, including some with children of their own, 
and, if the demand exists, they will be happy to adapt their 
boys camp to handle a post-college crowd. 

One of the hidden benefits of the Camelot camps is yet to 
come. Before they go home, practically every camper will 
want at least one complete new outfit, several sizes smaller 
than the clothes they wore when they arrived the end of June. 
Naturally, they'll buy them locally. 

Selinsgrove looks forward to picking up those two tons 
of fat that will be left behind for many summers to come.
